ABOUT ME

Hello, thank you for visiting my page! I am a quantitative psychologist by training, meaning that I studied methods for collecting, managing, and statistically analyzing data in the social and behavioral sciences. I currently work as a Senior Research Statistician at Boston College in Massachusetts, supporting faculty, graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers with their statistical analyses related to academic research.

 

I earned my PhD in 2017 from University of California, Davis under the mentorship of Dr. Shelley Blozis. As a quantitative psychologist, my research has covered topics such as advanced methods for analyzing categorical and continuous data with many zeros, linear mixed-effects modeling and methods for detecting individual differences in longitudinal data, and an applied study in which we used a multilevel survival model to predict grade retention in K-8th grade.

I am a proud queer scholar and committed to a future full of queer joy. My commitment to this future (as well as a future free of cages and of white supremacy) informs how I move through the world always, and including in my research and teaching endeavors.

Finally, when I am not at work, I am spending time with my partner and our happy little family! We moved from Sacramento to the East Coast in 2020 to be closer to my family, and were so blessed to have my in-laws follow close behind. Now we live in Jamaica Plain, Boston with our perfectly sweet and joyful baby, our dog (Fisher) and cat (Worm).
