Research Interests & Projects

My research interests are still developing. Thus far, I have worked on penalized regression and epidemiologic methods, with applications in cancer, HIV, women's health, and health disparities. However, I am interested in many other things, including causal inference, missing data, neighborhood/network effects, and electronic health records. I hope to explore *some* of these topics over the course of my PhD.

In addition, I have a passion for the history of public health ethics, the intersection between public health and human rights, and biostatisticians' role as public intellectuals and advocates.
