I am an applied statistician and a PhD candidate in the Department of Biostatistics at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, advised by Dr. Kasper Hansen and Dr. Elizabeth Stuart.

For my dissertation I am developing statistical methods to help tackle problems in genomics and stratified (precision) medicine.

My broader academic interests are in multilevel and causal models, the interplay of bayesian and sampling theory ideas, and effective statistical communication (including graphics and teaching).

I'm originally from Melbourne, Australia, where I worked in the laboratory of Dr. Tony Papenfuss after completing undergraduate and masters degrees at the University of Melbourne.
