  • Instructor


I hold a Ph.D. in Statistics (2003) from Yale University. From 2003 to 2012, I was on the faculty of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics as well as the Program in Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Hunter College of the City University of New York (CUNY). I initially came to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) in early 2011 on a sabbatical leave from CUNY. I stayed at NCHS through May 2018, to develop statistical methods for measuring and tracking health-related inequalities, and ultimately served as Associate Director for Science for the Office of Analysis and Epidemiology (OAE) at NCHS, where I was responsible for the initiation, monitoring, and oversight of OAE and NCHS research projects. Presently, I work as a freelance statistical consultant, researcher, and teacher.
