I’m an applied statistician / data scientist, working in both R and Python, with over 11 years of programming experience and 9 peer reviewed publications. I am an organizer for RLadies, a global network of meetup groups to support gender diversity in the R community.
I’m fascinated by the ways variability or noise changes the patterns that we expect to emerge in data. I focus on computational approaches for both frequentist and Bayesian frameworks to account for variability in mechanistic models.
I live with two rescue pups, Maggie and Ruthie, who I think are really bears just pretending to be dogs. I spend most of my free time drinking coffee, hiking with the doggos, and watching baseball.
