About Me

I am currently a lead data scientist for the client-facing people analytics team at McKinsey & Company, where I help clients use data to improve decision-making around talent related questions. Before this, I received my Ph.D in 2015 from the Quantitative Psychology program at the University of Virginia, where I worked with Brian Nosek, Sara Rimm-Kaufman, and Timo von Oertzen on projects focusing on quantitative challenges found in applied educational research. I also participated in the July 2015 Insight Health Data Science program in Boston. My interests include statistics, machine learning, education, and open science. If you look around, you will find some blog posts, publications, and relevant code. You can also see a copy of my resume here.
