I am a 4th year statistics PhD student at the University of California, Irvine. I am interested in Bayesian methods for statistical inference, graphical models for network inference, and explainable machine learning modeling. I am a member of the UCI/UCSC joint Space Time Modeling Group. My primary research is the application of Bayesian state-space models for time-varying inter-brain-region connectivity using fMRI data.
I’m committed to cultivating a diverse and respectful academic community. I serve as a member of the Diverse Educational Community and Doctoral Experience (DECADE) student body as both a department representative and as a Graduate Mentor to underrepresented undergraduates.
