PhD Student and Research Assistant
Division of Biostatistics, University of Minnesota
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
B.A., Economics, University of Oklahoma, 2018

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.
