Take a look at my most recent publication: Economic insecurity and the rise in gun violence at US schools.

This paper by A.R. Pah, J. Hagan, A. L. Jennings, A. Jain, K. Albrecht, A. J. Hockenberry & L. A. N. Amaral (2017) investigates the relationship between US unemployment and trends in shootings and schools. Here we expand the study of school shootings by building a consensus dataset including types of school shootings that extend beyond the typical classification. We also employ a variety of sophisticated statistical methods.


Current Projects: investigating the effects of systematic non-random error on un-balanced data, evaluating how data distortions affect housing decisions, testing exogenous interventions on death outcomes.
