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

I’m interested broadly in public policy and public health. 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.
