I am broadly interested in complex systems, which I primarily study through the lens of probability theory. At a microscopic level, this often involves working with Markov chains, random walks, and discrete geometry. I am also active in clinical data science through my work at Dascena.

Before the statistics PhD program at UC Berkeley, I completed an MSc in theoretical physics from the University of Oxford, an MSc in mathematics from the University of Bristol, and a BS in bioengineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am grateful to the Marshall Scholarship for my time in the UK.
