Orestes "Pat" Hastings


I grew up near Austin, Texas. I attended college at Rice University where I studied physics and math. Eventually, I traded studying the physical world for studying the social world. Currently I am a sociology PhD candidate at the University of California, Berkeley. The specifics are on my research page.

I am married to Michelle and we have two boys, Patterson and Gideon. I enjoy being active outside, especially running and climbing, which I sporadically document on instagram and track on Strava and Mountain Project.
