I am currently a Postdoctoral Scholar at the DataLab at UC Davis (formerly Data Science Initiative). I provide data science support for applied research throughout the university, and data science training for students and faculty. I consult on wide-ranging projects, for a study of software citation practices in geodynamics publications to automatic detection of data in wine sales catalogs using optical character recognition, and prediction of bloodstream infection in burn victims. I lead coding workshops and help to organize community data events.

I worked as a Research Statistician for the Economic Roundtable, where I analyzed public data on people experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles. I developed a model to estimate the number of people who experience homelessness in an entire year based on available point-in-time data. For a partner organization in Santa Clara Country I built thet statistical model for a triage tool to identify individuals most in need of permanent suppotive housing. Working with DataKind, I organized a hackathon to build interactive visualizations of data on homelessness.
