I am an Institute of Education Sciences (IES) postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University. I am advised by Larry Hedges. My interest in education research stems from my experience as a Teach For America corps member in the Mississippi Delta.
I earned my Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University's joint Ph.D program in Statistics and Public Policy. During my time at CMU, I was a Program for Interdisciplinary Education Research (PIER) fellow who occasionally presented at and helped to organize the Statistics in Education Research Group (SERG) seminar.
I am currently on the job market. My preference is for tenure track positions at either (i) a statistics / data science / math department that values collaboration with the social sciences or (ii) a college of education / department of public policy that values research in statistical methodology. I am also open to other kinds of positions; please contact me if you would like to discuss an opportunity.
