Hi! I am a PhD student in the Department of Statistical Science at Duke University since Fall 2014. I work with David Dunson and Galen Reeves, my PhD advisors, on new methods and theory for scalable Bayesian computation. Additionally, I collaborate with Duke clinicians on the analysis of medical records.

I got my my BSc with a focus on Mathematics and Computer Science in 2014 from University College Roosevelt, a small liberal arts college in the Netherlands. There, I was a research intern as part of the Sirius Program for Excellence in Dutch Higher Education and spent a semester abroad studying Mathematics at the Australian National University. I received my MSc in Statistical Science from Duke in Spring 2016.
