I am an applied scientist at Zillow, planning to graduate with my PhD in statistics from the UW in August 2021. I’m from Huntsville, Texas, home of the 67-foot Sam Houston statue and 7 different prisons! I went to Pomona College, studying math, stats, and CS. After undergrad, I spent a year modeling energy systems and carbon emissions at Energy and Environmental Economics in San Francisco, before moving to Seattle to start my PhD at the UW. I’m an amateur cross-country, track, and trail runner with Club Northwest (I’m on the board, too!), I backpack all over the world, and I play the piano. I’m also a sucker for a good happy hour ;).
