I am a PhD student in the Biostatistics department at the University of Washington. I am studying stepped wedge cluster randomized trials under the guidance of my advisor Dr. James Hughes, in collaboration with Dr. Patrick Heagerty. Currently, I am interested in different types of misspecification and studying new robust methods for analyzing these trials.
Through my RA appointment at the Center for Biomedical Statistics, I have been working on data analysis and manuscript preparation for the Comparison of Outcomes of antibiotic Drugs and Appendectomy (CODA) trial. Right now, I am focusing on identifying factors associated with long-term appendectomy in patients who were randomized to antibiotics to help inform clinical decision-making.
Before moving to Seattle for graduate school, I lived in Minnesota. I graduated from St. Olaf College in 2016, where I spent two years working in the Center for Interdisciplinary Research, 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 with my dog, Stellaluna.
