About our instructor:
Julia Marden is a data librarian and consultant, with a decade of experience working at the intersection of civic technology, education, and community engagement. With her firm, Tiny Panther Consulting, she brings data librarian services to the public, teaching data literacy workshops and helping socially-minded organizations collect and analyze data with the communities they serve. Julia commutes around NYC on a glitter purple bicycle, on a quest to demystify data and upset the balance of power in data-driven research.
