I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of California, San Diego. My research interests include race and ethnicity, representation, and immigration in the comparative and American contexts. If you have questions about my research, please contact me via email: lspangle[at]ucsd[dot]edu.

Thanks to my research (and for fun, to be honest!), I spend a lot of my time working in R and Python. I am continually seeking new ways to make my code more efficient and transparent. I’m also active in the R-Ladies group in San Diego.
