I am an assistant professor of statistics and data science at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and a quantitative analyst at Google in Mountain View.

I recently completed my Ph.D. in Statistics at Stanford, where I worked with Jonathan Taylor (Statistics) and Julius Smith (Music, Electrical Engineering). I was also affiliated with the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). I'm generally interested in statistics, signal processing, machine learning, and musicology—particularly their intersection.

Before moving to California, I was an undergrad at Harvard, where I studied Music and Mathematics. My thesis advisor was Richard Wolf.
