I'm a fourth year PhD student in statistics at Pennsylvania State University, with interests in bioinformatics, machine learning, big data, and replication.

Before starting graduate school I worked as a data analyst at both Zynga and GrubHub. I completed my BA in economics with a minor in statistics at the University of Chicago, where I was a member of the Chicago Debate Society.
