I'm a member of the statistics group at the RAND Corporation in the Washington, DC office.
Previously I was a post-doctoral research associate in the Department of Statistical Science at Duke University, working under the guidance of Prof. Jerry Reiter. I graduated with a PhD in Statistics from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in August of 2009 where my adviser was Prof. Rick Nordheim. Prior to that, I majored in math at Whitman College.
Broadly, I am interested in applied Bayesian methods, focusing on applications in the social and health sciences. Recent and current projects include: Bayesian multinomial probit models; selection and switching models; latent factor quantile regression; imputation techniques for missing data; exploratory data analysis for quantile regression; data confidentiality.
