Gus joined HRDAG as an intern, and has been Junior Data Scientist & On-Boarding Manager since May 2018.

As a data scientist, Gus has worked on human rights data projects connected with the Colombian peace process, the Guatemalan civil war, and criminal justice in the United States.

As manager of on-boarding, he developed a curriculum and has brought new employees, fellows, and interns up to speed. This includes training on the HRDAG systems, data processing standards and best practices, and technical tools including Unix commands, the Python programming language, the vim editor, bash shell, and git version control.

Gus is currently a high school senior at Crystal Springs Uplands school and works for HRDAG during the summers and part-time during the school year.

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.
