I am a 5th year PhD student co-advised by Francesca Dominici and Tianxi Cai. My PhD thesis involves statistical methods (hypothesis testing, Bayesian hierarchical models, Bayesian causal inference) for the analysis of observational data with multiple correlated outcomes. Areas of application include genetics, electronic medical records, and health care policy. I am also interested in Bayesian nonparametrics, data science, and sports analytics. I have a Bachelor’s in Actuarial Science/Finance and Statistics from the University of Waterloo, and am an Associate of the Society of Actuaries.
