Parker Ziegler

Hey, I'm Parker.

I am a computer scientist, software engineer, and cartographer based in Berkeley, CA. My passions lie at the intersection of software development, programming languages, human-computer interaction, and geospatial technologies. I currently spend a lot of my time working on open source tools to help others build better software.

I also believe place shapes every part of who we are. Here are some of the places that have shaped me.

Now – Berkeley, CAPreviously – Seattle, WABirthplace – Salt Lake City, UTSchool – Middlebury, VTHome – Northampton, MA

What I'm Up To

I'm currently a Ph.D. student in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department at UC Berkeley, advised by Professor Sarah Chasins. My research focuses on using novel techniques from programming languages research to build new tools for social scientists, climate researchers, and journalists. Previously, I worked with the wonderful and talented folks at Formidable, where I contributed to their open source work. Check out some of my recent contributions.

Tools I Work With

I love everything about the Web and spend most of my days working with these lovely languages and tools.
