My dissertation research focuses on combining disparate data sources to estimate the effects of environmental and climate exposures on health. To do this, I apply computational methods in epidemiology, machine learning, causal inference, and networks analysis to large-scale clinical, demographic, and geospatial data. Secondarily, I am interested in issues of human rights, data privacy, and ethics.

In my role as a Graduate Research Assistant at UNC, I work with Dr. Emily Pfaff to examine the potential for machine learning and target trial emulation to identify and characterize populations at risk of Long COVID as part of the National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C), and the NIH RECOVER Initiative.

As a Research Scientist at CrisisReady, I work with Prof. Satchit Balsari, Prof. Caroline Buckee, and Dr. Andrew Schroeder on building pipelines for equitable crisis planning and response in the context of COVID-19, the Syrian War, and Climate Hazards in India.
