I am a research associate in the Biostatistics Department at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and at the Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. My areas of research include risk prediction, genetic epidemiology, measurement error, survival analysis, frailty models, causal inference, and comparative effectiveness research. I work with Dr. Parmigiani in the BayesMendel lab and Dr. Francesca Dominici.
