Brianne Caplan

Data Scientist | Leader | Philanthropist

Hi there!

I am a native of Baltimore, but am now a proud Chicago transplant since attending the University of Chicago. I founded Code Our Dreams due to my passion for using technology as a powerful tool in bridging the education and achievement gap. I currently work as a Data Scientist at an education technology organization called Edovo. I am especially interested in combining my passions for data and technology with art and philosophy, by using the internet as a dynamic medium for storytelling.
