About Me


I'm currently a data scientist at Plated, a meal kit company based in NYC and subsidiary of Albertsons. Previously, I worked as an associate research scientist and data scientist in the Division of Learning Analytics at the Institute for Innovations in Medical Education of the NYU School of Medicine, where I did research on the use of feedback, refresher education, and adaptive content delivery systems in medical education with Dr. Martin Pusic.

I earned my M.S. in Data Science from the NYU Center for Data Science, where I worked as a teaching assistant, graduate researcher, and statistical consultant.

My background is in educational measurement, cognitive science, and machine learning, with a strongly computational and Bayesian orientation. I earned my B.S. in Brain & Cognitive Sciences from the University of Rochester in 2012, where I concentrated in psycholinguistics and language development.

I transition pretty fluidly between Python, R, and SQL, and typically use all three in tandem for most projects, as the task requires.

Substantively, my primary research interests lie at the intersection of educational technology, measurement, and computer supported collaborative learning. Currently I'm interested in:

1) developing a framework for the assessment of collaborative problem-solving within educational technology platforms,

2) understanding the relationship between metacognitive and cognitive factors in modeling learning growth curves, and

3) applying causal inference methods to policy evaluation in interventions addressing educational access, refugee services, and racial justice.
