Nathan Lovin

Data Analyst


I am a Data Analyst at the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC). Although I have transitioned from the academy to data science, I am still working on my dissertation on nights and weekends. The project covers the political development of the US South during the 20th Century and the impact of these developments on present day politics. I have extensive training and experience in statistical modeling, spatial analysis, and R programming.
