Professional Experience:
  • 2010-2016, Research Biostatistician, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY

I completed my Masters in Biostatistics at the University of Minnesota in 2010 and I worked with Patricia Grambsch on my Masters project, "Comparing the performance of various methods for estimating survival with prevalent cohort data under violation of the independent truncation assumption." I then worked for six years as a biostatistician at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York where I collaborated on many projects with the Breast and Hepatopancreatobiliary Services in the Department of Surgery as well as research related to the design and conduct of phase I trials. A few things I enjoy in my spare time are playing soccer, cross country skiing and going to new breweries.
