I'm a PhD candidate in the BioSciences Department at Rice University (aiming to complete my degree August 4, 2017). My research focuses on the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of invasive species, but I also have experience in data analytics consulting and engineering.

I am broadly interested in using data to answer questions about anything that I can quantify, with a particular focus on making predictions about the dynamics of complex systems.

Modeling and Statistics Experience: Bayesian Hierarchical Models, Linear and Generalized Linear Mixed Models, Maximum Likelihood Estimation, Model Selection, State-Space Models, Stochastic Simulation Modeling, Mathematical Modeling, Experimental Design, Hypothesis Testing, Data Visualization.

Programming Experience: R (scripting and package development), MATLAB, Julia, Python, Bash, Git, Excel.
