I am an assistant professor of statistical science at Duke University. I frequently find myself studying fundamental properties of different statistical concepts and am broadly interested in network analysis, causal inference and computational constraints of statistical methods.

Come to our workshop at NIPS 2017 in Long Beach, CA: From 'What If?' To 'What Next?' : Causal Inference and Machine Learning for Intelligent Decision Making. The deadline for extended abstract submission is October 30, 2017.

I help run the New Researchers Group at the Institute of Mathematical Statistics which coordinates the Meeting of New Researchers in Statistics and Probability.
