About me


I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Statistics Department at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Kathryn Roeder and Aaditya Ramdas. I am also excited to be joining the Statistics Department at the University of Pennsylvania as an assistant professor in the fall of 2020. In the spring of 2019, I completed my PhD in statistics at the Stanford Statistics Department, advised by Prof. Chiara Sabatti and supported by a Hertz Fellowship. Before coming to Stanford, I received a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Princeton University, where I worked with Prof. Amit Singer on problems in cryo-electron microscopy.

I am interested in developing statistical methodology oriented towards applications in genomics. Methodologically, I am interested in multiple testing and variable selection problems in the presence of structure, which is ubiquitous in genomics. I am also broadly interested in reconciling data exploration with inferential guarantees. I have applied these ideas in the context of genome-wide association studies and Gene Ontology enrichment analyses.
