I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biostatistics at the Yale School of Public Health. I have a secondary appointment in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and I am affiliated with the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS, the Institute for Network Science, the Computational Biology and Bioinformatics program, and the Operations doctoral program at the School of Management.
I completed my PhD in Biomathematics at UCLA in 2012 under the guidance of Marc A. Suchard. I work on mathematical and statistical problems related to stochastic processes in epidemiology, public health, biomedicine, and evolutionary science.
My methodological and theoretical interests include:
- Networks and graphs
- Stochastic processes
- Computational statistics
My work has practical applications in many fields, including:
- Public health
- Evolution and ecology
Please contact me if you would like to know more about my work.
