I graduated from the University of Wyoming with my Master’s in Science May 2019. My thesis was on the bacterial communities of a parasitic plant and how it interacts with fungi and adjacent trees. Working in ecology provided the foundation for studying complex, interconnected networks. My interests shifted from my study system to the statistical methods needed to model complex interactions and large datasets. After completing my degree, I worked at RStudio as an Intern where I created tidyblocks.tech, a blocks-based coding language to teach high school statistical students the fundamentals of programming. After my internship I was employed by Cytel where I create custom shiny applications using a combination of R and JavaScript, and was the lead developer of tidycdisc, Biogen's open source package to explore CDISC standard data In R.
