Prior to starting my research degree in 2013, I worked for several years in epidemiology and global health. This included both statistical analyses in the US and UK, and health systems work in Nepal, India, and South Africa. I received an MSc in epidemiology from LSHTM in 2008, and S.B.s in Physics and Anthropology from MIT.
What gets me out of bed in the morning is wanting to work towards a world where equity is the norm, and everyone has opportunities to lead a healthy and meaningful life. What keeps me at my computer late at night is my love of learning new statistical techniques and using them on real datasets.
