I am a PhD student in Epidemiology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I also completed my MS in Statistics in 2016. I am advised by Professor Ron Gangnon and Professor Jun Zhu. My research focuses on methods in spatial epidemiology, specifically working on statistical methods and applications in spatial cluster detection. I am also a Statistical Consultant (Project Assistant) with the CALS Statistical Consulting Lab and volunteer as a Data Carpentry instructor/helper teaching R to UW-Madison researchers. I was a 2016 Data Science Fellow at Data Science for Social Good and previously worked at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business Accounting Research Center as a Research Professional.
