Infectious disease modelling and epidemiology, particularly the detection, surveillance, and dynamics of new and emerging pathogens and how to better inform public health with actionable insights in a timely manor
Bayesian inference and analytic techniques
Application of survey analytic techniques (including small area estimation) applied to novel data sets
Applied machine learning and prediction
Simulation and optimization
Additionally, I am an advocate for improving mobility. In my spare time I volunteer as a member of the Winston-Salem Transportation Coalition where we advocate for better public transit. I employ data science techniques in order to quantify and shed light on the issues.
You can read more about my work here. Additionally, I maintain a site regarding local politics and economic analysis. You can read that here.
I came into statistics and data science from chemical engineering (which is what I studied at University). I also minored in philosophy and wrote my honors thesis in the English department.
After graduation I worked in industrial engineering at Michelin North America in plant industrial engineering and continuous improvement and at the central level in industrial engineering, project management and decision support and analysis.
