Carlos Algara, Ph.D.
I’m originally from the great Pacific Northwest (Tacoma, Washington) and I am a fiercly partisan Seattle Mariners baseball fan and Washington State University Cougars fan. I am a proud alumnus of Washington State University and I hold a Masters of Public Policy from Oregon State University. I have worked as a legislative intern in the Washington State House of Representatives and on Capitol Hill for U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR). Most importantly, I am the proud first-generation son of immigrants and first-generation college graduate.When I am not busy studying or reading about the Congress (rarely), I enjoy exploring the vast state of California and watching any basketball, baseball, or football game in front of me. I also enjoy playing around and tweeting about data visualization in R. Thank you for visiting!
