Miles Watkins is the newest member of our team! Miles is a self-taught Pythonista who loves exploring new open datasets and creating useful tools. He has a background in econometrics, statistical policy evaluation, and geospatial analysis.
Miles joins us from the Sunlight Foundation as one of the maintainers of the OpenStates project. He’s going to help us build visualizations, maps, and software that are information-dense but easy-to-use.
Outside of work, you can find Miles enjoying soccer, hiking, travel, Wikipedia binging, and Super Smash Bros. He likes his board games German, his map projections equal-area, and his Pokémon first-gen.
