About Me

I am an assistant professor of biostatistics in the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center. Prior to joining Fred Hutch, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Division of Biostatistics in the University of California, Berkeley School of Public Health, where I worked with Maya Petersen and Mark van der Laan. I completed my PhD in the University of Washington Department of Biostatistics, working under Ali Shojaie.

My research focuses on high-dimensional and nonparametric statistical inference, with broad applications in public health and medicine. I have recent and ongoing work on methodology for nonparametric inference on function-valued statistical parameters that arise commonly in causal inference problems and prediction problems, and I also have current interest in the development and application of methodology for analyzing data from vaccine efficacy trials. In addition, I have experience working on problems related to treatment effect heterogeneity, analysis of high-dimensional biological networks, and the design of randomized trials with adaptive randomizaton schemes.
