I am an assistant professor at the Department of Statistics at the University of Washington. I am also a data science fellow in the eScience Institute, and the Consulting Director of the Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences. I obtained my Ph.D. in Statistics at the University of California, Los Angeles, advised by Chad Hazlett and Judea Pearl.

My research focuses on developing new causal and statistical methods for transparent and robust causal claims in the empirical sciences. I am particularly interested in the inferential challenges faced by social and health scientists, as well as the intersections of causality with machine learning and artificial intelligence.
