I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Statistics at North Carolina State University, where I have been working since Aug 2020. I received my Ph.D. in Statistics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Jul 2016. From Aug 2016 to Aug 2020, I was a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Statistics at Virginia Tech. Here's my CV.
I am working on formal inferential algorithms for network data and applying such algorithms to epidemiology, social sciences, and environmental health. I am also working on developing a statistical science of patient safety, focusing on adverse medical events due to human errors, medical devices, drug reactions, and radiation therapy.

Our work on scalable community detection has now been published in Statistica Sinica. This is joint work with Yuguo Chen and our co-advised Ph.D. student, Sayan Chakrabarty. This paper is part of a broader research project on scalable network inference.
We received a one-year ($250k) computing supplement from the NIH for our R01 grant on learning gut-brain interactions. This supplement will help us set up an innovative computing framework for next-generation statistical algorithms related to biomedical data.
