I am a first-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. I am now a Research Assistant on a forensic genetics project supervised by Professor Bruce Weir, working on software to better understand DNA evidence from multiple contributors. I am interested in pursuing clinical trials research, but I also look forward to exploring other areas of research during my time here.
In my free time, I am an avid home cook, and I enjoy yoga, running, and hiking in the mountains outside Seattle.
