I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistical Science at Duke University, with a secondary appointment in Biostatistics and Bioinformatics.

Prior to joining Duke, I worked with Kenneth Lange at the University of California Los Angeles with support from the NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. I completed my PhD in Statistics at the University of Washington advised by Vlad Minin, where my work was funded by an NDSEG Fellowship.

I grew up in Tucson, where I received a BS in Mathematics from the University of Arizona in 2012. There I was mentored by Kevin Lin and William Vélez, supported by the Flinn Foundation Scholarship.
