Candidate for BA in Political Science at Northeastern University (Expected Graduation May 2024)

Vincent (he/him/his) joined the Social Innovation Forum in July 2022 as a Special Projects and Operations Co-op from Northeastern University. In this role, he works with the Manager of Strategy and Operations to assist in the collection, storage, and usage of data for continuous improvement and learning. In addition, he works with the team on the redesign of the SIF website, including content creation and transfer.

Vincent is currently entering his third year at Northeastern, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with minors in International Affairs and Italian. While at Northeastern, he has participated in multiple research projects with both faculty and peers which involved statistical analysis, visualization, and presentation. One project, in particular, pertains to an analysis of Boston’s social capital by neighborhood based on the number of existing sites of social infrastructure in these areas to identify those most in need of increased social capital. Vincent also has experience participating in the political system, including interning at a local state Senator’s office and canvassing for a local progressive candidate in his hometown. Through these experiences, Vincent has maintained a strong interest in pursuing social change by working in local communities, a goal which he looks forward to continuing in his role at Social Innovation Forum.
