About

I joined UW Biostatistics in 2019 as a Ph.D. student after I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a BS degree in statistics and mathematics. My research interest is in statistical genetics, especially the application of statistical methods to identify genetic risk factors of human diseases. 

I am working with Professor Sharon Browning as a research assistant. Our research focuses on historical effective population size estimation using identical-by-descent segments in the X chromosomes of pairs of individuals.
