About

I am currently a statistician at Optimizely where I'm in charge of our stats engine. Previously I was a fellow at Data Science for Social Good.

I studied statistics at UNC-Chapel Hill under Shankar Bhamidi and Andrew Nobel. Basically, I did probability and networks (here's my thesis). Before that, I graduated from Swarthmore College and worked for two years at the CBO in Washington, DC.
