I am an Assistant Professor of Statistics at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. I serve as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Statistical Planning and Inference. Previously, I was a faculty member at the University of Pittsburgh, and I spent one year as a National Science Foundation Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Statistics at the University of Michigan. I completed my Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics and Statistics at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.

My current research interests include:

— Statistical Machine Learning
— Multivariate Statistics
— Network Analysis
— Matrix Analysis

On the theoretical side, my research develops statistical theory for complex data problems, often involving networks and graphs. My work also examines the mathematical foundations of data science via the study of matrices. On the applied side, I work on problems arising in the natural sciences (currently, neuroscience and biology) and in the social sciences (currently, economics and sociology) that involve dimensionality reduction, inference, and structure discovery.

My research is supported by NSF grants DMS-1902755 and SES-1951005. I am grateful for past research support during my studies from the NSF, NIH, DARPA, and JHU. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of funding agencies.
