I am currently a postdoctoral associate in the Crawford Lab in the Department of Biostatistics at Yale University. I completed my Ph.D. in Statistics from the University of Washington, advised by Tyler McCormick.

I am broadly interested in developing statistical (usually Bayesian) tools to practical problems in demography, epidemiology, and public health. I am particularly interested in how to reliably characterize complex dependence structures in noisy high-dimensional data. Some of my substantive areas of interest include verbal autopsy data and practice; child mortality; spatial-temporal infectious disease data; and reproducible scientific research and open-source software development.
