Catherine Chang recently graduated from Yale University, where she studied Economics and Statistics & Data Science.
As a JURIST Digital Scholar, Catherine’s ultimate goal is to broaden public understanding of legal change, expand access to primary sources and encourage civic engagement. To this end, she will analyze JURIST’s most-read and least read articles, writing functions that extract information related to article length, topic, author, and national focus and merging that dataset with Google Analytics. Through her research, she hopes to better understand the attributes that make certain articles more widely read than others and that her findings promote publishing practices that make legal issues and developments more accessible to the public.
Catherine loves singing and studying architecture/urban studies. Lately, she has been reading Haruki Murakami and drinking way too much coffee. She is really excited to be a part of the JURIST Digital Scholars Program, and is looking forward to getting to know everyone!
