Biostatistics & Statistical Learning

About Me

I am a PhD student in the University of Washington Department of Biostatistics in Seattle.

Currently, I research statistical methods that address covariate and outcome measurement error in compositional data analysis with Dr. Pamela Shaw at The Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute. These methods have direct application in epidemiology studies using wearables to investigate brain health.

Additionally, I develop selective inference methods with Dr. Arkajyoti Saha and Dr. Daniela Witten. Our work has potential applications to neuroimaging and -omics data.

I am also interested in is statistical genetics. At UCLA, I researched distal non-coding RNA regulation in breast cancer using eQTLs and mediation analysis with Dr. Arjun Bhattacharya and Dr. Bogdan Pasaniuc.

I graduated with my bachelors in statistics at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. As an undergraduate, I researched meta-analysis with Dr. Brinley Zabriskie and epigenetics with Dr. Steve Johnson. I was a 2020 visiting undergraduate research fellow at the Harvard Medical School DBMI in Dr. Peter Kharchenko's group.
