In the past weeks we welcomed three new people to our team, we’re excited to have Robert Stahl joining our research staff as a research associate focused on housing and community development projects, Miguel Barbosa to lead our web and data visualization work and Anslem Ufomah joins us to manage our internal and web technology systems.

Robert joins us by way of the Alameda County Public Health Department where we had worked with him in his role managing the Place Matters effort.  Most recently he earned his MPH from UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health.  Bobby proudly spent several years working to influence housing, economic, and climate related policies to improve health in the neighborhoods and communities of historically marginalized groups in the Bay Area.  He is a proficient Spanish speaker with a passion for social justice and extensive experience with research & writing, advocacy, and relationship-building in support of social, economic, and racial equity.  Like all our research team Robert will be covering a range of projects with a mix of GIS, data analysis, policy and social research components.


Miguel is our resident civic hacker and is rethinking the dozen or so websites we’ve built as well as taking our data viz work to another level on the web.  He is a web developer and chartered financial analyst with a background in behavioral sciences.  Before working as a developer and data visualizer Miguel worked as an equity analyst at a hedge fund in Chicago where he was responsible for analyzing & sourcing global investment ideas.
