The Gang
I am a PhD candidate at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, where I study epidemiology & biostatistics in its Department of Population & Quantitative Health Sciences. Before joining CWRUSOM, I conducted policy research in Washington, DC for Reason Foundation and the Cato Institute, focusing on opioid and other health-related policies. Additionally, I lectured in statistics and economics at multiple institutions in the Ann Arbor area as I pursued my double master’s in mathematics and economics at Eastern Michigan University.

My current research interests include theoretical epidemiology, political epidemiology, and causal policy analysis. As an undergraduate at EMU, I had the opportunity to play varsity football for the Eagles, while being an active member of the Honors College. Feel free to explore my site and research — you may contact me with any inquiry through email.
