Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Rice University


I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Interinstitutional Graduate Program in Biostatistics for Cancer Research between Rice University and MD Anderson Cancer Center under Christine B. Peterson. I attended Baylor University for both my graduate and undergraduate education, earning my Ph.D. in Statistical Science under James D. Stamey and Dean M. Young, and a B.B.A. from their Baylor Business Fellows program with concentrations in Finance, French, and Mathematics.

My doctoral research focused on parameter estimation when data experience misclassification, both under- and over-counting, through the construction of confidence intervals based on integrated-likelihood-ratio methodology. I currently have one paper in production at Statistica Neerlandica and another under review at Information Technology and People, with others in preparation.

I also enjoy teaching, having taught at Baylor University and McLennan Community College during my time in graduate school. Courses that I have taught include: Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, Elementary Statistics, Business Data Analysis, and Introduction to Business Analytics.
