I am a second-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Statistics at the University of Washington, where I am developing next-generation methods for Bayesian phylogenetic inference with the Matsen Group at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. I grew up in the Greater Boston area and am an avid photographer of New England’s flora and fauna. During high school I discovered the interdisciplinary field of computational biology and had the opportunity to work on projects in this area with groups at Harvard and MIT. After I was awarded a scholarship by the Siemens Foundation in 2013, I followed my research interests to the Centre for Computational Evolution at The University of Auckland where I was involved with a number of projects. In September 2016, I started my Ph.D. in statistics at UW.
