Steve is interested in a huge variety of topics in programming and technology, from natural language processing to cryptocurrency. While at NETLAB, he contributed to software packages that aim to make computational social science easier and more accessible to sociologists and scientists. He writes code in Python and R, and he also spends time tending to the lab’s fickle Linux server Brad. When he is not working, Steve can be found reading his favourite blogs like Lewis and Quark and Coding Horror, or following the Toronto Maple Leafs. Steve holds an Honours Bachelor of Knowledge Integration and a minor in economics from the University of Waterloo. In September 2017, Steve started a new journey in programming, becoming part of a small team of data scientists at the Canadian government’s department of Employment and Social Development.
