I am a PhD candidate in biostatistics at Columbia University. My research with Dr. Yuanjia Wang and Dr. Jeff Goldsmith focuses on methods for high-dimensional correlated data (graphical models and functional data analysis), with applications in neurology and neurobiology. I am a TRANSFORM TL1 Precision Medicine Pre-doctoral Trainee.

I earned a BS in mathematics from Christopher Newport University in 2011 and a MS in biostatistics from Harvard University in 2014, where my thesis work focused on causal inference. I also spent several years as a biostatistician at Massachusetts General Hospital and an analyst in Analysis Group’s Health Economics and Outcomes Research practice. I am skilled in both SAS and R, and have experience in the design and analysis of clinical trials, longitudinal observational studies, electronic health records, insurance claims databases, structural MRI data, and wearable device data.
