About

I am a first year PhD student in Biostatistics, from Needham, Massachusetts. Before starting in the department, I was a post-bachelor fellow and then researcher at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation. At IHME I worked on several projects related to global health metrics and demography, including the estimation of age-specific all-cause mortality. I have also worked as an AmeriCorps VISTA data analyst at the Rhode Island Free Clinic in Providence, and as an undergraduate research fellow at the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory. Generally, my research interests are statistical demography and epidemiology, survival analysis, and methods for working with biased or missing data.

I also enjoy cooking and exploring the Seattle food scene, getting out on the water (sailing/canoeing/swimming), and visiting a good art museum.
