Hi! I am an Economics and Neuroscience major and an athlete on the Vanderbilt Rowing Team. I initially became interested in data science through an economics research project focusing on integration of the U.S. agricultural market during the Great Depression. This summer, I will use the DSI-SRP fellowship to conduct research on developing tools to predict the spread and impact of COVID-19. In the future, I plan to combine my passion for science and economics to develop public health improvements for disadvantaged populations in developing nations.
