I am a first year PhD student in the Biostatistics department at the University of Washington. I work as a research assistant at the Seattle Children’s Research Institute with Michele Shaffer studying pediatric liver transplant. I currently am interested in a wide variety of fields within biostatistics, but in the past I’ve enjoyed projects involving clinical trials and circular statistics.

Before moving to Seattle for graduate school, I lived in Minnesota. I went to St. Olaf College, where I got degrees in math and biology, with concentrations in statistics and mathematical biology. At St. Olaf, I spent two years working in the Center for Interdisciplinary Research, where I consulted on clinical trials conducted by Exercise Science students and worked with a group studying the randomness of head direction cells in anesthetized rats. I also attended the University of Minnesota SIBS program in 2015.

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, baking, and screen printing, and I play the euphonium.
