Background

My experience spans a variety of settings, including local and federal government public health agencies, academia, consulting and entrepreneurship. As data and computation continue to be pervasive aspects of our lives, my courses introduce students to how data science and statistics are understood (or, in many cases, misunderstood) and demonstrated in our everyday lives.

My research focuses on modeling data collected from individuals across time with attention to variable choice, bias reduction, and the use of data visualization to communicate complex and high-dimensional data. I am excited to enable students from various disciplines to align their coursework, research and skill sets with data-focused careers.
