About Me

I am a software engineer at RStudio, and previously worked as as a statistical programmer at the rglab within the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. I am a tool builder -- I enjoy developing computational tools that help researchers and scientists to achieve their analytic goals.

I completed an MSc in Statistics at the University of British Columbia, under the supervision of Jenny Bryan. My thesis (PDF) involved the study of gene-gene and gene-Rx interaction effects, and statistical assessment of these epistatic effects in yeast growth curves.
