Hannah Wheelen

Data Specialist
Princeton Gerrymandering Project

Hannah coordinates the collection of voting precinct boundary information with the goal of producing a complete, open-source set of all 50 states plus DC and Puerto Rico. She also hopes to develop intuitive and accessible tools for the public to use the data to do their own redistricting.

Before coming to Princeton, Hannah worked with the Metric Geometry and Gerrymandering Group at their summer Voting Rights Data Institute at Tufts/MIT on redistricting and gerrymandering. Her projects included examining the compactness of districts, the spatial clustering of voters, and MCMC algorithms, as well as collecting precinct data for the state of Ohio.
