Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

I received my Ph.D. from the School of Statistics at the University of Minnesota under the supervision of Adam J. Rothman. Before that, I graduated cum laude from St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN with a BA in Mathematics and a concentration in Statistics. In 2017, I moved to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, WA, where I work with Li Hsu and Wei Sun.

In August 2019, I will join the Department of Statistics at the University of Florida as an Assistant Professor.

My research interests are in multivariate analysis, numerical optimization, and more broadly, statistical and machine learning. In particular, I’m interested in developing computationally efficient and model-based methods for classification, regression, clustering, and dimension reduction, with an emphasis on methods that are applicable to statistical genetics and genomics.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments about any of my work.
