I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable, I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.

– Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

I am currently a PhD student working with Andreas Handel at the University of Georgia (Department of Epidemiology & Biostatistics). My main skills are R programming, scientific computing, and data analysis. I like using data science and statistical methods to inform cool questions about viruses, mainly flu. Find me on Fediscience!
