University of Pittsburgh: MS Epidemiology (2014)


University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health, Department of Epidemiology


I am a Graduate Research Assistant with Projet Tycho since January 2017. My work for Project Tycho is focused on translating public health data and epidemic simulators into a machine readable format. I am a doctoral student in the Department of Epidemiology at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health (GSPH). I received my MS in Epidemiology from GSPH in April 2014.

My main research interests are pharmacoepidemiology, geriatric epidemiology, health care utilization and new models of provider network, with a focus on addressing these issues for type II diabetes. I have previous experience as a research assistant for Dr. Julie Donohue in the Department of Health Policy and Management on a project using Pennsylvania claims data to investigate the role of physician networks in the adoption of new prescription drugs. In my free time, I love reading, doing yoga and traveling around the world.
