About Jyllene

I am an aspiring political scientist, and I believe I can change the world...or at least the world in which I live. I am a full-time PhD student in political science and public administration. I am interested in the intersection of technology and government, and believe the tools we have can make big change! I've worked in higher education administration since 2006, and decided to give it all up to further my education in 2014 (yikes!).

My loves include my two dogs, Crumb and Choco, my family, cooking, Chicago, and Chicago sports teams (Go Bears! Go Blackhawks! Go White Sox! Go Bulls...sorry Cubs).

I'd love to connect in other places online. If you connect, please let me know you're from CNET!
