About

I am a fifth-year PhD candidate at FES working with Professor Michelle L. Bell. I am expected to graduate in May, 2016. My primary research interest is Environmental Health. More specifically, I am interested in the potential impacts of air pollution and climate change on human health. My dissertation research is on present-day and future air pollution from wildfires, its health effect, and the resulting environmental justice issues.

I was a teaching fellow for a few statistics courses at both undergraduate and graduate levels. In my spare time I work at the Yale Statistical Laboratory as a statistical consultant and instructor. My current and past courses include GIS workshops, introduction to R, intermediate R, Advanced Excel, and introduction to SAS. I am also a graduate affiliate at Davenport College at Yale, which involves adivising undergraduate students interested in applying to graduate schools. I enjoy teaching and working with students from various academic and social backgrounds.
