About Me


I am an assistant professor in the Department of Statistics at Indiana University.  My research is on statistical methods for the analysis of brain imaging data, with a focus on functional MRI.    I hold a PhD in biostatistics from Johns Hopkins, where I was advised by Martin Lindquist and Brian Caffo, and an MS and BS in industrial engineering from Georgia Tech.  My graduate studies were party funded by the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program, to which I am eternally grateful.

At Johns Hopkins, I served as student-faculty representative (2012-2013) and as host of Biostats tea time (2013-2014).  I was a founding member of Bmore Biostats, a website/RSS feed and working group for students interested in blogging, and co-founder (along with Leonardo Collado-Torres) of the Cultural Mixer, a semi-annual event that brings together students, faculty and staff to learn about and celebrate the many cultures represented in the department.
