Explore Human Trends with Data!

Hello World, it’s Ryan Gomez.

Ryan Represents is the portfolio of Ryan Gomez, a data scientist that uses information and spatial analysis to explore human trends. This work has began with a campaign for public office in 2020 and grew into the fight for fair redistricting and data wrangling for academic research.
