I am a first year Biostatistics PhD student from Toronto, Canada. Currently, I am working as a research assistant with Dr. Daniela Witten. We are developing methods to decompose data in settings where traditional data splitting methods are not applicable. I am also working with Dr. Amy Willis in studying the lung microbiomes of Cystic Fibrosis patients by decontaminating data from sputum samples. My broader research interests include Bayesian inference, correlated data, and high-dimensional problems with applications in demography, global health and social development, and microbiome data.
Before entering the PhD program, I earned my MSc in Statistical Sciences at the University of Toronto. I also worked as a Research & Data Consultant for the UNESCO Global Education Monitoring Report (GEMR) team.
Outside of my work, I like to spend my time playing squash, reading books, and baking.
