I am delighted to introduce you to Mediate.com’s first Chief Data Scientist, my good friend Oladeji Tiamiyu.
If you’d like to meet Oladeji, please join us for a panel on Thursday, July 14th (Bastille Day) at 11am Pacific / 2pm Eastern entitled The Future of Post-Pandemic Mediation. To join, go to: http://odr.com/zoom and you’ll be directed into the zoom room.
It is becoming increasingly obvious that data will provide the foundation for the future, and that all of us in the dispute resolution field need to get smarter about how we collect it, analyze it, and learn from it. Oladeji has helped me enormously in understanding how data can help our field to constantly improve the quality of services we offer to our parties, and I know he’s going to open a lot of minds in the Mediate.com community as we move forward into this new reality.
Oladeji is currently a Senior Clinical Fellow at Harvard’s renowned Negotiation and Mediation Clinical Program (HNMCP). Prior to joining HNMCP, Oladeji was an Online Dispute Resolution Fellow with the Resolution Systems Institute in Chicago, Illinois (founded by the wonderful Susan Yates) where he helped in developing a pilot online dispute resolution program for family law disputes. Oladeji has also worked with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and Constitutional Review Commission in The Gambia. He has experience as a teacher in Reunion Island off the coast of Madagascar and as a community organizer with Organizing for America in Ohio.
His research interests include exploring reconciliation initiatives in the aftermath of national crisis in addition to exploring the intersection between technology and dispute resolution. His research has been published with Cardozo’s Journal of Conflict Resolution as well as The Ohio State Journal on Dispute Resolution.
Oladeji is a member of the Massachusetts Bar and the Illinois Bar, holds a B.A. in Political Science (magna cum laude) from the University of Toledo, and a J.D. from Harvard Law School. I highly recommend you check out Oladeji’s excellent HNMCP podcast, Convergence, where he and his guests explore leading issues at the intersection of technology and conflict resolution.
It is truly humbling to watch Oladeji analyze and tame large data sets — my jaw drops when I watch him do his thing. He is able to comprehend data clouds that drive me into absolute confusion. Even better, he’s a super nice guy. I’m delighted he is joining our team to help us wrangle complex data sets into dashboards and reports that can benefit and enlighten our Caseload Manager and ODR.com clients and partners.
Again, if you’d like to meet Oladeji, and learn about some of the valuable insights into the current state of our field he’s collected as part of a major research project over the last year, please join us for a panel on Thursday, July 14th (Bastille Day) at 11am Pacific / 2pm Eastern entitled The Future of Post-Pandemic Mediation.
Oladeji and his distinguished panelists (including Cassie Lively, Missy Greathouse, and Helen Winter) will discuss the lessons drawn from Oladeji’s research (on SSRN here: <https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=4149682>) as well as taking questions and observations from attendees. To join in, just visit http://odr.com/zoom and you’ll be directed into the zoom room.
Please join me in welcoming Oladeji to the Mediate.com family, and we hope to see you next week!
