My research covers a variety of topics in statistics and data science, typically motivated by scientific questions in global health, economics, demography, and sociology. Recent projects include estimating features of social networks (e.g. the degree of clustering or how central an individual is) using data from standard surveys, inferring a likely cause of death (when deaths happen outside of hospitals) using reports from surviving caretakers, and quantifying & communicating uncertainty in predictive models for global health policymakers. More information about OpenVA, our suite of open tools to manage and analyze verbal autopsy surveys, is available here.

I’m the former Editor of the Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics. I’m excited and humbled to be a 2019 recipient of the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award.

I currently have multiple openings for postdoctoral collaborators. For more information and to apply directly please see here.
