I am currently a postdoctoral researcher working with Forrest Crawford in the Department of Biostatistics at Yale School of Public Health. I obtained my Ph.D. from the Department of Statistics from 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, child mortality, and infectious disease dynamics in space and time. I also spend a lot of time in writing (usually R) software and helping people use them.
