Jeremy Ney: American Inequality Blog Discussing Innovative Topics Using Geospatial Data

by Placekey

Jeremy Ney is a dual-degree student, currently pursuing an MPA (Master in Public Administration) at Harvard Kennedy School and an MBA from MIT Sloan School of Management. In his MPA work, he focuses on U.S. income inequality and tech policy, and in his MBA work he focuses on data science, geospatial mapping, and prediction.

Using the skills from both these disciplines, he’s launched his American Inequality blog. By targeting topics that are often neglected, he turns the spotlight on these issues, displaying findings using geospatial data and lots of maps! These detailed, data-centered maps makes it super easy to follow along and grasp the concepts presented.
