My research interests are in developing and analysing methods for
joint modeling of longitudinal and time-to-event data. I have also
worked on mathematical statistics problems related to notions
of exchangeability for survival processes as well as network
modeling. More recently, I have begun work on just-in-time
adaptive interventions with applications in mHealth.
I am a postdoctoral researcher in the
Department of Statistics
at Harvard University ,
starting August 2017. Before that, I was a postdoc at University of Michigan.
I received my PhD in Statistics at the University of Chicago in 2015,
Peter McCullagh .
Prior to graduate school, I worked in the Financial Strategy
Group in the Investment Banking Division at Citi.
