I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Pennsylvania in the Criminology Department. My PhD is in Statistics and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University. My training is primarily in statistics and data science.

My work is driven by interdisciplinary projects in which I use statistics and data science to study problems in public policy, public health, and forensic science. For my dissertation, I worked with Stephen Fienberg and Edward Kennedy on nonparametric estimation in causal inference, with applications in forensics and public health. For my postdoctoral fellowship I worked under the supervision of Richard Berk and Greg Ridgeway in the criminology department at the University of Pennsylvania, where I continued to study causality in the law and the statistical foundations of forensic science.
