Statistics PhD Candidate

University of Texas at Austin


I am currently working on a COVID-19 mortality forecast, along with Professor Lauren Meyers and the rest of the UT-Austin COVID-19 Modeling Consortium.

About me

I am a fourth-year PhD candidate in statistics at the University of Texas at Austin, within the Department of Statistics and Data Sciences. I am co-supervised by Professors James Scott and Jared Murray, and work as a research assistant for Professor Lauren Meyers in the Department of Integrative Biology. Previous I was an RA for Professor Carlos Carvahlo.

From 2017 to 2018 I worked as a statistician in the laboratory of Dr. Livia Eberlin at the UT Department of Chemisty. The Eberlin Lab apply ambient mass spectrometry techniques to tissue diagnosis, disease biomarker detection, and other clinical settings. I have also worked as a statistical consultant for the Department of Women’s Health at the Dell Medical School.
