I am a Ph.D. Statistics candidate at the University of British Columbia. My supervisor is Benjamin Bloem-Reddy. I am interested in the uses of symmetry in inference and computation, and I am working on data-based methods for identifying distributional symmetries with applications to statistics, machine learning, and scientific discovery.
Within the Department of Statistics. I TA for undergraduate statistics courses, train new TAs in the department, and assist with Flexible Learning studies that develop learning resources for statistics. Outside of the department, I facilitate Instructional Skills Workshops for graduate students and TA Institute workshops at the CTLT.
See my CV for a complete history of my activities and experiences.
