Degree Program: Ph.D., Biostatistics
Advisor: Bryan Shepherd

I finished my BS in Biomedical Engineering at The University of Michigan in 2011.  Since that time, I’ve worked as a Math teacher at a secondary school in Sierra Leone with the US Peace Corps and as a research technician in a Neuroscience lab at MIT in Cambridge, MA.  Through these experiences I’ve gained an interest in observational health data and quantitative techniques I will explore during my time at Vanderbilt.  In Nashville, I’m involved with some amateur music projects and playing ultimate frisbee when weather permits.
