I am a PhD student and NSF GRFP Fellow in the Department of Psychology at the University of Oregon. My work in the Social and Affective Neuroscience Lab focuses on individual differences in health behavior change and predictive modelling of health outcomes in an effort to advance a precision medicine framework for behavioral health.

As part of my doctoral training, I am pursuing a Data Science Specialization focused on reproducible data analysis, data visualization, functional programming, and machine learning. In addition, I have served as a lab instructor for both undergraduate statistics and a graduate-level Data Analysis Sequence in the Department of Psychology.

I am also an RStudio Certified Instructor in the tidyverse – please feel free to reach out if you’re interested in having me lead a workshop or training for you. You can see an example of my teaching materials here .
