I am a researcher working on applied problems in health, epidemiology, and development economics. My background is in biostatistics and Bayesian methods.
I’m a Consulting Director at Development Innovation Lab at University of Chicago, currently working with the lab’s founder Michael Kremer on studies of water quality interventions and deworming, as well as supporting the lab’s other statistical work. I’m passionate about making Bayesian meta-analysis methods more accessible to social scientists and using statistical inference to better support effective altruist causes. My own research into this has been funded by grants from Schmidt Futures (2019), Open Philanthropy (2022), and FTX Future Fund (2022, oops).
Since 2020 I have also been working on COVID, including research on fractional dosing of vaccines, accelerating vaccine supply, and supporting human challenge trials (as an advisor to 1Day Sooner). For my work on COVID I was awarded an Emergent Ventures prize.
As a consultant in health care at Certara (2014-2022) I worked on all stages of drug development, with focus on improving Bayesian modelling techniques in predicting real-world effectiveness of treatments, health technology assessment, and epidemiological modelling.
