Prior to starting my research degree, 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, 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.
