I am an Assistant Investigator in Biostatistics at Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute (KPWHRI).
I completed my doctoral studies in Biostatistics at the University of Washington under the guidance of Marco Carone and Noah Simon. Prior to joining KPWHRI, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division at Fred Hutch, where I worked with Ying Huang.
I am interested in problems of high-dimensional data, data science, and statistical inference. In particular, I enjoy working on developing new methodology for addressing scientific questions using large and complex datasets, and appropriately quantifying uncertainty in the resulting estimates. I also enjoy working on problems involving how best to tell a story using data. I have been primarily motivated by applications in public health and medicine, but I am always open to collaborations on interesting problems in any area of research.
I previously served as a member of the Hutch United Outreach Committee, and am committed to increasing equity, diversity, and inclusion in (bio)statistics and science more broadly.
