Tom Goode provides quality, objective analysis in the national security, homeland security, and public safety domains as a data scientist at the RAND Corporation. He supports sponsors in the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and the Intelligence Community by leading quantitative research tasks focused primarily on disinformation, systems confrontation, and mass attack prevention. Beyond wrangling complex datasets and applying novel statistical and machine learning methods, Goode has coordinated large studies as a project manager and taught visualization methods as a Professor of Public Policy at the Pardee RAND Graduate School.
