Saint Joseph's Indian School
Evaluation and Logic Model Support
Saint Joseph's Indian School provides holistic housing and education for Native American children. In close partnership with school leadership, we are working to refine their logic model and develop a survey to assess student outcomes. To monitor program activities and student outcomes, we are developing comprehensive data aggregation across various record systems. Our goal is to identify, implement, and monitor evidence-based programming to serve the Lakota children attending the school.

Automated Creation and Electoral Simulation
We're building a platform to algorithmically draw Congressional districts and to evaluate historical election data against generated/historical district lines. Our intent is to explore potential optimizations to our system of representative democracy, frame unanswered Constitutional questions about representative success, and propose objective/non-partisan districting methods based on our findings.
Argument Mapping and Mining
Contentious policy disagreements within the country have resulted in an era of unprecedented partisan gridlock. We believe constructive compromise can be facilitated by reducing common debates to core concepts and questions guiding participants towards the opposing viewpoint. Resulting data may reveal heavily-weighted factors influencing policy positions, generally or within specific demographics.
