I'm Hope Johnson.

I am currently a data fellow at UCLA Law School's COVID-19 Behind Bars Project. I am on the team compiling data of COVID-19 related cases, deaths, and early releases in prisons and jails around the United States. I'm also using statistics and data visualization to demonstrate how the pandemic has impacted people on the inside.

In my last job, I helped create an open-source electoral precinct database called OpenPrecincts at the Princeton Gerrymandering Project.

Before that, I did statistics and data science at Mathematica Policy Research. At MPR I described, analyzed, and simulated public health data.

In the past, I have worked on data projects related to police accountability, digital privacy, and prison abolition.

I studied statistics in college.

I live in Brooklyn, New York.
