Assistant Research Professor at Washington State University. I received my Master’s degree in biostatistics in 2002 and worked as an analyst for some years before pursuing a doctoral degree in epidemiology at the University of Minnesota. My interests include translating best practices in quantitative methods and causal inference theory to the real-world settings in which we conduct community-based research. I enjoy collaborating with my colleagues and our community partners to craft innovative grant applications for health promotion in Native populations. As a GUMSHOE coach, I help participants articulate clear scientific questions, identify appropriate study design, and develop compelling narrative that is accessible to reviewers who may not be experts in the field.
