Hello! I'm a third-year PhD student in the Biostatistics Department. Prior to coming to UW, I studied math and religion at Bowdoin College, and then I spent two years working as a research assistant at Statistics Collaborative, a clinical trials consulting company in Washington, DC.
Broadly, I am interested in research related to clinical trials for infectious diseases. I'm currently working with Dr. Elizabeth Brown on better modeling household transmission of COVID-19, and we have also collaborated with Dr. Jen Balkus on research related to the dapivirine vaginal ring for HIV prevention. In addition, I am assisting Dr. Holly Janes on study design for an HIV challenge trial in infant macaques in the effort to prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission. During my first year, I was a research assistant on a forensic genetics project supervised by Professor Bruce Weir.
In my free time, I am an avid home cook, and I also enjoy running, hiking, and cross-country skiing.
