Welcoming Our New HRDAG Data Scientist

We’re pleased to announce that Bailey Passmore joined the HRDAG team this month, as our new data scientist.

In their role at HRDAG, they’ll process, clean, and prepare data for analysis, and provide data support where needed across projects. Bailey comes to HRDAG after working as a Data Science and Research Consultant for the San Diego Supercomputer Center, where they mined, cleaned, and analyzed system performance data. They graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a bachelor of science degree in Cognitive Science.

“I am very excited to be part of the HRDAG team and feel honored by the opportunity to apply my technical skills to human rights work,” says Bailey.

HRDAG’s executive director, Megan Price, says, “It’s so exciting for us to grow our team with Bailey. I am so impressed by their thoughtful approach to data processing and analysis, and their understanding of the stakes of the work we do. I’m really looking forward to working together.”

“Interviewing Bailey was a lot of fun!” says HRDAG director of research Patrick Ball. “I enjoyed their creative answers to our technical questions, and I’m looking forward to working together.”

Our work has been used by truth commissions, international criminal tribunals, and non-governmental human rights organizations. We have worked with partners on projects on five continents.
