I received my bachelor's degree in Statistics and Economics from the
University of Rochester
in 1994 with a certificate in Actuarial Studies, a certificate in Management
Studies of Information Systems, and a citation of special acheivement in
Mathematical Economics. I spent a fifth year under a special program
called the Take Five doing multilingual studies (Spanish, Hebrew, American
Sign Language and French).
In May 1996, I completed my Master's degree with the
Department of Statistics
Carnegie Mellon University
where I was nominated for the 1996 Carnegie Mellon University Graduate Student Teaching Award.
I moved to Boston and took a job at
New England Research Institutes
as a Biostatistician on the Virology Quality Assurance Project and the Hemophilia Growth and Development Study and was the statistical computing expert.
Most recently, I began the Ph.D. in Biostatistics program at Boston University School of Public Health
and am working at the Data Coordinating Center there as a Statistical Analyst.
