Currently, I am an Assistant Professor in the Division of Biostatistics at the University of Minnesota. My focus is primarily collaborative work in the Masonic Cancer Center and methodological research in the area of statistical learning.

In August 2016, I completed my Ph.D. in Biostatistics from the University of Washington. While at UW, I developed methods for data-adaptive modeling in the area of high-dimensional statistics under the direction of Noah Simon and Daniela Witten, while also gaining experience in applied settings through working at the UW Clinical Trial Center for the Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium and doing consulting work. After completing my degree, I had a postdoctoral appointment at UW, focusing on developing methods for the analysis of calcium imaging data. Prior to my time at UW, I graduated with a B.A. in mathematics and a statistics concentration from St. Olaf College in May 2011.
