My name is Joshua Preston and I’m a writer, poet, and historian from Montevideo, Minnesota. In 2013 I graduated from the University of Minnesota Morris (Political Science & History) and am currently a research fellow at Baylor College of Medicine’s Initiative on Neuroscience and Law. There I do big data analysis (with a criminology focus) and am the assistant managing editor of The Journal of Science and Law. My creative writing and articles have appeared in The Rain Taxi Review of Books, The Humanist, Popshot Magazine, Voices in Bioethics, and elsewhere.
While at the University of Minnesota I served as chairman of the Student Senate and later as a representative to the Board of Regents (2012-2013). Actively involved in state politics, I also served one term on the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party’s State Executive Committee (2012-2014). In 2013, I became the youngest recipient of the Humphrey School’s Mondale Research Fellowship.
