About Me

I'm a PhD student in statistics at the University of California, Berkeley, advised by Michael Jordan, Jon McAuliffe, and Tamara Broderick. I am currently a fellow at the Berkeley Institute for Data Science. My research interests include variational methods, Bayesian robustness, sensitivity analysis, open software, and the philosophy of science.

I studied mathematics and theoretical and applied mechanics as an undergraduate at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign and have an MSc in econometrics and mathematical economics from the London School of Economics. My work experience includes engineering jobs at Google and HP and two years as an English and math teacher with the United States Peace Corps.
