I'm currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Statistics at Penn State University, with research interests in high-dimensional inference, classification and regression, and machine learning.

Prior to starting graduate school I worked for four years in data analytics, first at GrubHub and most recently at Zynga. I completed my B.A. in economics with a minor in statistics at the University of Chicago.
