I’m a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Chicago’s Harris School of Public Policy.

I’m interested in public health, environmental monitoring, and public policy. My recent research is primarily in environmental health with a focus on childhood lead poisoning. My methodological interests include causal inference, Bayesian multilevel modeling, targeted interventions, experimental design, and spatiotemporal modeling.

I was previously at the Center for Data Science and Public Policy. Before that, I studied mathematics at Northwestern and my dissertation was in the field of geometric analysis.
