Biostatistics & Statistical Learning
I am a PhD student in the University of Washington Department of Biostatistics in Seattle.
Currently, I am a research assistant for Dr. Daniela Witten where I research selective inference methods. I am interested in developing high-dimensional statistical methods that can be used in personalizing medicine for diverse patient populations.
I graduated with my bachelors in statistics at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. During my undergraduate, I researched meta-analysis with Dr. Brinley Zabriskie and epigenetics with Dr. Steve Johnson. Additionally, I was a 2020 visiting undergraduate research fellow at the Harvard Medical School DBMI in Dr. Peter Kharchenko's group. Via the 2021 UCLA BIG summer program, I researched distal non-coding RNA regulation in breast cancer using eQTLs and mediation analysis with Dr. Arjun Bhattacharya and Dr. Bogdan Pasaniuc.
