About Me

I am a data scientist at the Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Laboratory. Previously, I worked for the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System as an internal consultant on statistical computing. I have also been a consultant to numerous government agencies, including the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Executive Office of the President, and the United States Department of Homeland Security. While an undergraduate at the University of Maryland, I worked in space systems design and telecommunications. I am also a passionate educator, teaching mathematics and statistics at the University of Maryland University College since 2010 and public administration at Central Michigan University since 2017.

In my spare time, I serve Howard County, Maryland, as a member of the Board of Appeals and the Watershed Stewards Academy Advisory Committee of the University of Maryland Extension. Prior volunteer experience includes providing economic advice to the Columbia Association, establishing an alumni association for the College Park Scholars Program at the University of Maryland, and serving on numerous public and private volunteer advisory boards.

I have a doctorate in public policy from the University of Maryland Baltimore County where my research focused on the economic and social effects of flood insurance. I also have a master of public administration from the University of Baltimore and a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from the University of Maryland.
