Josh D. Grossman

Hi! I’m Josh.

I am on the academic job market for teaching-focused roles in the 2023–2024 academic year.

I’m a Ph.D. candidate in Computational Social Science at Stanford University’s Department of Management Science & Engineering (MS&E). Broadly, my research applies tools from data science to issues in public policy. I’m particularly interested in understanding how racial disparate impact manifests itself in judicial decisions and college admissions. I recently interned as a data scientist at Recidiviz, a non-profit that builds technology to reduce incarceration. Before graduate school, I worked as a data scientist at the Stanford Computational Policy Lab. Before that, I worked at IXL Learning, a K–12 education technology company. I completed my bachelor’s degree at Harvard University, majoring in Neurobiology and minoring in Statistics. My work is generously supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship (NSF GRFP). I’m advised by Sharad Goel, Professor of Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School (formerly Stanford MS&E).
