I grew up near Ithaca, New York, where I was home-schooled for elementary school, an experience that shaped my belief in the value of self-directed, intrinsically motivated learning. I went to college at SUNY Geneseo where I received a degree in Mathematics in 2014. I spent four years working as a software developer at Silent Spring Institute where I developed digital tools for communicating complex scientific data to a lay audience. I began a doctoral program in biostatistics at UMass Amherst in 2018, where I am working with Leontine Alkema on spatial Bayesian modeling.
