Hello and welcome to my website! I am currently a PhD student in the Department of Biostatistics at Vanderbilt University. I graduated from the University of Alabama — Tuscaloosa in 2017 with a BS in Mathematical Statistics & a minor in Biology.
My research interests lie at the intersection of statistics, health policy, and data science. Currently, I aim to increase my knowledge of clinical & health data, “big data” computation methods, and biomedical data privacy to explore “big” federal datasets (e.g. Medicare or Medicaid) and healthcare cost effectiveness. I am also excited by public policy in general, and am involved in some local and national campaigns for the 2018 cycle.
Some of my other interests include R and Shiny (fun fact: this website was made using R and blogdown), geospatial statistics, and teaching my 1-year old son how to say “Roll Tide!”. I’m active on Twitter, especially in the #SciPol community, so feel free to reach out!
