Josh D. Grossman

Howdy! I’m Josh.

I’m an assistant teaching professor in data science and statistics at UC Berkeley. In addition to expanding access to statistics and data science education, I’m interested in understanding how racial disparate impact manifests itself in judicial decisions and college admissions. I completed my Ph.D. in Computational Social Science at Stanford University’s Department of Management Science & Engineering (MS&E), where I was advised by the one and only Sharad Goel. Before graduate school, 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. I also have an old cat with a small but dedicated local following.
