About me


I am a fifth year PhD student in the Stanford Statistics Department, very lucky to be advised by Prof. Susan Athey. I focus on machine learning and causal inference problems, ranging from improving random forests for prediction and heterogeneous treatment effect estimation to evaluating the impact of a gender-based violence prevention program in Nairobi. To learn more about my random forests research, you can see a short talk I gave at the Bay Area Machine Learning Symposium in October 2018, here!

Before coming to Stanford, I received my B.Sc. from the University of Chicago in Mathematics. In my spare time, I love to hike and travel as much as possible.
