I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Biostatistics at Harvard University (Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health). You’ll find a little about me on this page. Please use the tabs at the top of the page for more information on my CV, research, teaching, and other writings.

I was born in Brooklyn, NY, to a high school math teacher and a (at the time) history graduate student. At the age of 6, my family moved to the small town of Mechanicsburg, PA. After graduating high school, I spent four wonderful years at Yale University (Ezra Stiles College Class of 2013), studying mathematics.

After college, I returned to New York City, spending three years between Manhattan and Queens. I worked in health policy research at the Medicaid Institute of the United Hospital Fund, which sparked my interest in the intersection of statistics and public health. This led me to back to graduate school and my current studies in biostatistics.

Outside of school, I enjoy playing sports (particularly tennis, soccer, and ultimate), as well as hiking and meager attempts at sailing. I also watch great TV and follow my hometown New York Mets and Knicks.
