I received my Ph.D. from the School of Statistics at the University of Minnesota in 2017. My thesis was supervised by Adam J. Rothman. Before that, I graduated 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 worked with Li Hsu and Wei Sun. In 2019, I joined the Department of Statistics at the University of Florida as Assistant Professor, and in 2020, became a member of the University of Florida Genetics Institute.

My research interests are in multivariate analysis, numerical optimization, statistical computing, tensor-valued data analysis, and more broadly, machine learning. My goal is to develop computationally efficient and model-based methods for classification, regression, clustering, and dimension reduction, with an emphasis on methods that are applicable in statistical genetics and genomics.
