Began undergraduate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW). Worked at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health as a data analyst for clinical trials within the Department of Family Medicine where some analyses were published. Afterwards pursued a master’s degree at Zilber School of Public Health at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee (UWM). Have some years in the pharmaceutical industry (AbbVie, Amgen) working on various data science / analysis projects. The experience at Zilber led me to UWM and working with Paul Auer, PhD on bioinformatics projects.
