my profile picture I am a postdoc in the Department of Human Genetics at the University of Chicago, co-mentored by Xin He and Matthew Stephens. I recieved my Ph.D. in 2016 in Biostatistics from the University of Washington advised by Noah Simon.

In my research, I develop statistical methods motivated by problems in genetics and genomics. Right now I am particularly excited about understanding the genetic architecture of gene regulation, integrating multiple genetic studies to learn about the biological relationships between traits, and association testing with spatially structured data types.
