Hello! I am a Data Scientist at Phylagen in San Francisco where I manage, process, and analyze high-throughput sequencing data on the environmental microbiome. I recently graduated with my doctorate in Statistics from North Carolina State University where I worked with Brian Reich.

For more about me, see my CV, visit my GitHub, or follow me on Twitter.




In my free time, I enjoy long-distance running; hiking trips; reading books and listening to podcasts on history, tech, sci-fi, and politics; programming, primarily in Python, R, and occasionally Julia; discovering and sharing new music (for several years I DJed under the name Voyager 3 at WKNC 88.1 FM); and consuming an alarming amount of coffee.
