Prior to joining the Department of Biostatistics, I spent two years as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School under the supervision of Professor Nicholas Christakis. Before that I worked at the Harvard Kennedy School for one year as a Fulbright Visiting Scholar with Professor David Lazer. I previously held a Research Fellowship at Oxford University for two years, a position that was joint between the Department of Physics and the Said Business School, where my mentor was Professor Felix Reed-Tsochas. I’m also a CABDyN Associate Fellow and an Associate Fellow at the Said Busines School.
