My name is Deblina Mukherjee. I graduated from the University of Chicago in June 2021, with a major in Sociology and minors in Computer Science and Statistics. I’m from New Jersey.
After graduation, I’ll be spending some time as a data scientist at Twitter , and some more time as newsroom engineering intern at the Washington Post . I’ll start as a full-time data scientist at facebook, where I previously spent two summers as an intern, in December. In the past, I’ve also worked at Media Cloud , Civic Hall, UChicago’s IOP, AAPI Data, VestHQ, and the IPE Lab.
At school, I was a member of Occam’s Razor, the founder of UChicago’s Open Data Project, and, from 2019 to 2021, half the EIC of the Chicago Shady Dealer. In the ‘20-21 academic year, I was also the Civic Engagement Chair on the IOP’s Student Advisory Board, and the Chair of UChicago Student Government’s Technology Committee.
