Lead Data Analyst
As someone who has always been interested in both politics and statistics, Jaco Chandra combines the two as NDTC’s Lead Data Analyst. Whether it’s managing the data visualization process, heading NDTC’s candidate-tracking operation, or administering org-wide data reports, Jaco assists NDTC’s departments with their data-related needs.
Jaco has been with NDTC since he graduated from the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign) in 2019. During his time there, he majored in Political Science and gained further political experience as a fellow on JB Pritzker’s 2018 gubernatorial campaign.
When he’s not crunching numbers for work, there’s a good chance he’s still crunching numbers. In his free time, Jaco enjoys over-analyzing political polls and election forecasts, re-watching Game of Thrones, and looking at advanced football analytics (Justin Fields will be a great quarterback by 2024, I promise you).
