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 methods to help tackle problems in molecular biology and targeted (precision) medicine.

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

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.
