I am a second year PhD student at Dartmouth College in the Quantitative Biomedical Sciences Program, an interdisciplinary degree in epidemiology, biostatistics, and bioinformatics. I completed my Bachelor of Science in 2018 from the University of Virginia, where I studied both biomedical engineering and applied statistics. Beyond my classroom experiences, I pursued an internship during Summer 2017, Winter 2017/2018, and Summer 2018 at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Working within the Board on Mathematical Sciences and Analytics and Committee on Applied and Theoretical Statistics, I developed white papers on diverse policy questions that involve mathematics, statistics, and data science. My interdisciplinary background has inspired my dissertation work to develop software and data science tools that can evaluate and eliminate the spread of public health misinformation on social media. Additionally, I collaborate on diverse clinical research projects through my work as a statistical consultant with the Biostatistics Consultation Core in the Dartmouth SYNERGY Clinical and Translational Research Center.
