Associate Professor of Biostatistics and Informatics

I am a tenured Associate Professor in the Department of Biostatistics & Informatics (B&I) and the Center for Innovative Design and Analysis (CIDA) at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.

My research interests are in the development of Bayesian statistical methods for information sharing and in the design of adaptive clinical trials. I am also interested in the intersection of these two areas to develop novel adaptive clinical trial designs that more efficiently and effectively utilize available resources, past trials, and past studies. I am currently an NHLBI K01 scholar working to extend these methods and designs to the world of cardiovascular outcomes research. Within CIDA I collaborate with clinicians and scientists across campus in translational research, especially in applications relating to gastroenterology, cardiology, anesthesiology, and pediatric obesity.

I earned my BS in Demographic Analysis (Interdisciplinary Studies) from Truman State University in 2012 and my PhD in Biostatistics from the University of Minnesota in 2017. My dissertation was advised by Joe Koopmeiners and focused on the development of multi-source exchangeability models (MEMs) as a general Bayesian approach to incorporating supplemental or historic data sources into a primary analysis.
