About Me

I am a fourth 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 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.
