About Me

I am a graduate student in the Computation, Organizations & Society program at Carnegie Mellon University. I am currently advised by Kathleen Carley. Additionally, I worked for the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center while developing my PhD proposal. My thesis will combine statistics, machine learning, and dynamic network analysis to build a model of preventive health care behavior that can be used to better target interventions to encourage more people to receive recommended preventive health care services.

As a PhD student, I was previously supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship. My MS degree was advised by Latanya Sweeney.
