About Me

Hi! My name is Grant Oliveira. I’m a 24 year old data analyst and quantitative social sciences researcher from San Diego, California. I’m a graduate of the University of California, San Diego with an Honors degree in Political Science. I have a deep interest in the intersections of politics and data, especially the ways that data can be leveraged to improve the quality and delivery of vital services. As a result I’ve developed my skills in several different data analytics disciplines. My primary tool is R, which I learned by completing nine courses in the Data Science Specialization offered by Johns Hopkins University via Coursera, and I also have experience in SQL, Tableau, Excel, STATA and SPSS.

I’m currently working as a freelance consultant performing economic research, public opinion research, and business intelligence analysis for a wide variety of clients. I enjoy it quite a bit, but I’m looking for something more permanent, so if you’re interested in hiring someone with those types of skills, I am open to all opportunities that heavily involve either data or politics (doesn’t have to be both!) My email is grant@oliveiradata.com and my resume can be found here.

Outside of my more professionally minded pursuits, I love travel, photography and filmmaking. I’ve worked in the past as a professional photographer, and in a variety of roles on a few indie film sets. For the past several years, I’ve been working on a project with my brother Jaime called “The Celebration”, a series of short documentaries highlighting unique cultural festivals around the world. Recently we’ve been successful obtaining funding for our trips and we’re currently developing the project with a production company to pitch to cable networks next year.
