I’m a fourth year Ph.D. student in the Department of Statistical Science here at Duke. I hold a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Mathematics (Statistics) from the University of New Hampshire and an M.S. in Statistics from Duke University. My research interests include Bayesian latent variable models and joint modeling applied to structured data of mixed types. These models are useful in a range of applications; a key area is developing flexible models for synthetic data to protect confidentiality and related applications to the imputation of missing data.
