I am a sixth-year PhD candidate in the Department of Biostatistics. I am working with Professors Katie Kerr and Lurdes Inoue. I am interested in developing methods for risk model development and evaluation using a decision-analytic framework. Currently, I’m working on methods for recalibration and development of risk models that account for the clinical context in which the model is used. Additionally, I have worked to connect decision-analytic frameworks that exist in the Bayesian and frequentist literature. My goals for this research are to (1) contribute to the understanding, interpretation, and implementation of methods to estimate clinical utility and (2) develop novel methods for development and evaluation of risk models that incorporate measures of clinical utility.This research uses ideas and methodologies from decision-analysis method (both Bayesian and frequentist), risk prediction modeling, and risk prediction model evaluation.

I am also assisting Dr. Elizabeth Brown on HIV related research through the Microbicide Trial at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

I am originally from Minnesota. I attended Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, where I received a B.A in Mathematics and minor in Statistics. In 2013, I graduated from George Washington University with an M.S. in Biostatistics.
