I'm a PhD candidate in the Division of Biostatistics at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, MN. I currently work with Dr. Eric Lock in the Division of Biostatistics and Dr. Christine Wendt at the University of Minnesota Medical School. I also work with Dr. Sandra Safo in the Division of Biostatistics and Dr. Chris Tignanelli at the University of Minnesota Medical School.
Previously, I was an adjunct faculty member in the Graduate Programs in Software at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN.
My dissertation research focuses on developing statistical methods for analyzing multi-source (typically multi-omic) datasets. I have worked in several disease areas, including cancer, lung disease, and COVID-19.
Other Academic Interests
Beyond research, I am interested in teaching statistics, encouraging others to pursue biostatistics as a career, and leveraging biostatistics to serve the community. This interest motivates me to help coordinate public outreach efforts by the Biostatistics Community Outreach and Engagement Committee at the University of Minnesota, as well as serve as a steering committee member of ENAR's Council for Emerging and New Statisticians (CENS).
Outside of work, I enjoy running, reading books, photography*, and bird watching!
