I am a Research Associate in the Global Environmental Health Research Group and the Abdul Latif Jameel Institute for Disease and Emergency Analytics (J-IDEA). Prior to joining Imperial I worked with UNICEF as a part of a team estimating global trends in child mortality and stillbirths. I received my PhD in Biostatistics from the University of Washington. I also obtained an MS in Biostatistics from George Washington University and a BA in Mathematics from Macalester College.
I am broadly interested in applications of statistics to problems in global and public health. Recent projects I have worked on include the development and application of Bayesian models to estimate global stillbirth trends, statistical methods for risk prediction that incorporate decision-theoretic measures, and examining associations between contraceptive and sexually transmitted disease in women at risk for HIV.
