Rebekah Blume

Research Assistant

As someone who is interested in how ideas about social change play out in the real world, I want show people how data-driven learning can be a positive and liberating experience. I love taking part in the development of ideas and practices surrounding social change, especially as information becomes exponentially more accessible.

It excites me when our findings inspire clients to ask more questions, but this can only happen when our products have clean, clear narratives and visuals. To this end, I ensure that clients see insight—not errors—in our work. As a Research Assistant, I administer surveys and make sure our data collection processes run smoothly, coordinate client communications, and clean and check data to protect its integrity. I bring to this work my experience as a researcher studying radicalism during WWI; my experience writing for radio, print, and online news outlets; and my administrative experience at a nonprofit health clinic. When I am not at my computer, I am generally working on permaculture projects.
