I am a fourth year PhD student in the Biostatistics department. My research interests fall broadly into the realms of statistical genetics and multiple testing, with the end goal of using large genetic datasets to answer questions about human disease and population history.

To date, my work has focused on statistical inference in populations with diverse ancestry, as well as identifying rare genetic variants associated with complex diseases. In particular, I am interested in developing methods to deal with multiple testing concerns that arise in these high-dimensional genetics applications.

I am originally from Plymouth, Minnesota. In 2014 I graduated from St. Olaf College, where I studied math, Spanish, and statistics and worked as a Center for Interdisciplinary Research Fellow. As an undergrad I also spent two summers at Dordt College's Summer Research Program in Statistical Genetics.

During my free time I enjoy playing and watching soccer, hiking, and snowboarding. More information about me can be found in my School of Public Health Graduate Student Profile.
