am a data scientist and social demographer who uses quantitative and qualitative methods to understand health behaviors in low-resource settings. My program of research aims to provide new evidence and measurement tools around health behaviors in global, low income settings by employing advanced data analytic techniques from big data to population representative data and social media data. I founded and co-lead the Big Data for Reproductive Health (bd4rh) Bass Connections research team at Duke.

I received my PhD in Public Policy Studies in 2016 with a concentration in sociology/demography from the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University and an MPA in 2011 from the Wagner School of Public Service at New York University with a focus on international development policy and management.
