I'm a PhD student in demography at the Princeton University Office of Population Research spending the summer as a guest researcher in the Lab of Digital and Computational Demography. At Princeton, my research has focused on the following two themes: 1) How human population health changes over time in different parts of the world, particularly through infectious disease and environmental factors, and how we can measure, model, and explain these changes. 2) The feasibility and ethics of using “big data” (eg digital trace data) for conducting demographic estimation, particularly among vulnerable populations. Before coming to Princeton, I earned a BS in international relations and biology and an MPH in epidemiology and biostatistics from Tufts University, and worked at the World Health Organization and Abt Associates, a U.S.-based policy research firm.
