I completed my PhD in the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science at Simon Fraser University in 2016 under the supervision of Drs. Richard Lockhart and Carl Schwarz. This is where I became interested in research problems in the field of statistical ecology, notably integrated population modeling. Prior to that I worked with Dr. David Haziza at the University of Montreal on problems of variance estimation and nonresponse adjustments in survey sampling.

After completing my PhD, I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow for two years in the Statistics Department at the University of British Columbia under the supervision of Dr. Paul Gustafson. This corroborated the Bayesian orientation of my research and I became interested in network meta-analysis and the challenges in analysing disconnected networks.
