Biography

I am an Assistant Professor appointed by the Department of Statistical Sciences and the Department of Psychology. I received my Ph.D. in Biostatistics at the University of Minnesota -Twin Cities in 2020 and B.A. in Mathematics/Statistics at Carleton College in 2012. 

I am an applied statistician primarily working on the field of neuroimaging, and I hope to provide new insights to better understand the human brain. While understanding the mechanism of the human brain and its relationship with cognition and neurodegenerative diseases is an active area of research, the neuroimaging data is considered “big” and complex to statisticians. As a statistician, I try to develop statistical models and inference procedures to account for several layers of correlation structures, including spatial, temporal, and functional dependencies.
