About

I am a current Master of Public Health Candidate at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, concentrating in Biostatistics and Epidemiology, graduating in May 2018.

During my program at JHSPH, I have been an Intern at the Lieber Institute for Brain Development, and a member of Andrew Jaffe’s lab, advised by Leonardo Collado-Torres. I am also a member of and contributor to LIBD Rstats Club.

Prior to the MPH program, I was a Research Analyst in David Montefiori’s lab, the Laboratory for AIDS Vaccine Research and Development at Duke University Medical Center, Department of Surgery from 2012 to 2017. I graduated from Boston University in 2012, with a BA in Neuroscience.
