    Ms. Jeza Sanchez holds a bachelor's degree in Chemistry from Ateneo de Davao University, and a law degree from Xavier University, in the Philippines. She currently heads the Regional Legal Service and the Program Development Divisions of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology in Northern Mindanao. Ms. Sanchez also leads a project with a 30-man team that aims to explore and use data analytics to optimize jail operations, and eventually address jail overcrowding by improving the access of Persons Deprived of Liberty (PDL) to justice and legal remedies. She hopes to gain additional knowledge and field experience in government innovation and policy experimentation through data management so she may effectively develop her pilot program on jail data analytics. Ms. Sanchez believes these will equip her as she works towards the betterment of the administration of the criminal justice system in her country.
