About Me

I am a fifth year Biostatistics PhD student at the University of Minnesota.

I grew up in Plano, Texas and attended the University of Oklahoma for my undergraduate degrees in economics and mathematics.

My research interests include methods for analyzing high-dimensional "omics" data, statistical learning, and Bayesian inference. I am currently involved with TRACK-FA, a study on Friedreich's ataxia. I have also worked on cardiovascular epidemiology projects involving the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study.

In 2021, I interned with Medtronic, where I curated a digital library of articles and R/SAS tutorials on methods including missing data, competing risks, and propensity score matching.


Ph.D. Biostatistics, University of Minnesota, December 2023 (expected)

B.S. in Mathematics, University of Oklahoma, 2018

Other Activities

  • I served on the 2021-2022 Minneapolis Redistricting Group, which redrew the boundaries of the city's Park Board districts and City Council wards. More information on my redistricting page.

  • In July of 2022 I was appointed by the mayor and city council of Minneapolis to the city's Housing and Rent Stabilization Working Group, for the purpose of working with various city stakeholders to perform a full fiscal analysis on the possible impact of rent stabilization and creating a report with policy recommendations.
