I am an Assistant Professor of Biostatistics at the Division of Biostatistics at the Department of Population Health, NYU Grossman School of Medicine. I am also a Visiting Researcher at Google, working with Ramin Zabih.
Previously, I was an Assistant Research Professor of Biostatistics at the Biostatistics Center and the Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics at the George Washington University School of Public Health, and a postdoctoral associate at the Cornell TRIPODS Center for Data Science and Cornell Tech mentored by Dr. Nathan Kallus and Prof. Thorsten Joachims.
My research focuses on the development and applications of statistical and data science methods for optimal decision making using real-world and experimental data.

The goal of this project is to understand the distribution, treatment and effects of COVID-19, particularly on underserved populations, ultimately improving public health.
The goal of this project is to developed novel biostatistical methods that optimally leverage trials’ results and data from electronic medical registries which is more representative of real-world clinical practice.
The goal of this project is to provide best practices for treatment care and management of patients who underwent surgical interventions.
The goal of this project is to understand and predict the risk of bleeding disorders.
The goal of this project is to investigate best practices and implementations of antiretroviral therapy for people who live with HIV.
The goal of this project was to investigate factors related to specific behaviors and evaluate the impact of public health policies to reduce risk behaviors in vulnerable populations.
I have been a teaching assistant for the following courses for the Doctoral Program in Epidemiology and the Research School for Clinical Epidemiology at Karolinska Institutet:
When I am not reading about biostatistics and data science, I like to learn more about contemporary history. I also enjoy keeping myself active by playing sports and going to the gym. I love to play and listen to music, especially electronic and film music. During the past few years I started several electronic music projects that included production using Ableton Live. Last but not least, I love to play, cuddle and spoil my fluffy dog Mister Pom Princess ``PK” Cake.
