I’m a first year PhD student in the University of Wisconsin-Madison statistics program. I just graduated from Rice University with a degree in statistics. At Rice, I spent most of time getting Rice DataSci, the fledgingly data science club, off the ground.

I spent my summer interning at RStudio. Previously I’ve done biostats research at Fred Hutch. Before that I led canoe trips for YMCA Camp Menogyn.

I’m interested in how statistics can help people make better decisions. I’m active in the R and data science communities, and am particularly interested in improving interfaces to modeling sofware. In my free time, I try to get outside to climb and bike.
