I’m currently an Associate Professor of Statistics and Sociology at the University of Washington. I’m also a core faculty member in the Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences and a Senior Data Science Fellow at the eScience Institute. This year I’m a visiting faculty researcher with Google PAIR.
I’m the current Editor of the Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics.
My research covers a variety of topics in statistics and data science, typically motivated by scientific questions in global health, economics, demography, and sociology. Please see my publications, software, and working papers. More information about OpenVA, our suite of open tools to manage and analyze verbal autopsy surveys, is available here.
News: I’m excited and humbled to be a 2019 recipient of the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award.
