I received a PhD in Applied Mathematics from Brown University in 2001. I was a postdoctoral fellow and visiting professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Chicago from 2000-2001. After that, I was an Assistant Professor (2001-2008) and then Associate Professor with tenure (2008-2010) of Biostatistics at the University of Chicago. I am currently an Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics with tenure, at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

My main research interests are in Bayesian modeling, inference, and computational statistics, with applications to a wide variety of fields, ranging from medicine and ecology to risk and insurance. My work includes modeling of infectious diseases (NPV, smallpox, influenza, MRSA, and meningitis), IP surveillance, and sequential decision making under uncertainty.
