Lecturer in Statistics and Data Science.
I am an applied and methodological statistician with particular expertise in causal inference. I am actively seeking collaborative projects related to environmental policy and climate change.

I conduct applied and methodological research in causal inference, which is the design and analysis of experiments and observational studies. My methodological work includes power analyses, simulation studies, applied Bayesian analysis, and the use of negative and positive controls in experimental design. My previous areas of application include education, healthcare, basic science, and genetics.
My future research agenda is to apply statistics, in particular causal inference techniques, to pressing problems in environmental and climate change science. I am actively looking for collaborators and projects where I can provide statistical expertise to help solve environmental challenges. I do not have much experience in the area of environmental research, but I am willing to learn and hoping to contribute.
