PhD student in Population Health Sciences (Epidemiology), MS in Biostatistics, 2016 - 2021

AB in Comparative Literature / Community Health, 2011
I’m currently a PhD student in the Program in Population Health Sciences and the Department of Epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. I’m also completing a Master of Science degree in the Department of Biostatistics. My research interests are in epidemiologic and biostatistical methods as well as reproductive and child health. I developed these interests at U.C. Berkeley, where I earned my M.S. in epidemiology, and while teaching third grade at Little Wound School in Kyle, SD, where I lived for three years. Prior to that I studied comparative literature (focusing on literary translation from French and Portuguese) and community health at Brown University.
My passion for teaching has continued beyond my experience in elementary education. I enjoy introducing students to epidemiology and biostatistics as well as delving into more advanced topics in causal inference. I love to create teaching materials, some of which can be found below.
I also love hiking and camping, reading novels, and programming in R.
An R package for calculating E-values for unmeasured confounding, selection bias, and misclassification
An online tool to help assess the possible extent of selection bias.
