About Me

I am currently a statistics postdoc in Tamara Broderick’s group at MIT. I received my PhD in statistics from UC Berkeley, where I was advised by Michael Jordan, Tamara Broderick, and Jon McAuliffe. I’ve additionally earned an MSc with distinction in econometrics and mathematical economics from the London School of Economics and undergraduate degrees in mathematics and theoretical and applied mechanics from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. In between studies, I have worked as an engineer for Google and HP and served as an education volunteer in the US Peace Corps in Kazakhstan. My current research interests include variational methods, Bayesian robustness, sensitivity analysis, open software. I also have an amateur interest in the philosophy of science.
