Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Department of Biostatistics, Harvard T.H Chan School of Public Health
I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Biostatistics at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, working with Dr. Francesca Dominici. Currently, the primary focus of my research is on the development of statistical and machine learning models to estimate the causal effects of environmental exposures on health in the presence of multiple simultaneous exposures, strong confounding, positivity violations, and complex, non-linear relationships between exposures, confounders, and health outcomes. More broadly, my methodological research interests include causal inference, Bayesian methods, tree ensembles, latent variable models, spatial statistics, and time series analysis. I enjoy using these methods to investigate scientific questions in a wide range of application areas such as environmental and reproductive epidemiology, neuroimaging, social science, and cell biology.
