Hello there! I am a Postdoctoral associate at the Department of Statistical Sciences, Duke University since August, 2018. I work with Prof. David Dunson on Bayesian statistical methods with a special focus on binary or count data types. My current research is motivated from high-dimensional species/event occurrence data where I frequently collaborate with Prof. Otso Ovaskainen and his team. I am also interested in building scalable Bayesian nonparametric methods for classical statistical problems such as density estimation. Before coming to Duke, I was at Texas A&M University where I obtained my PhD under joint supervision of Prof. Bani K. Mallick and Prof. Anirban Bhattacharya from the Department of Statistics.. In my thesis I worked on various computational, theoretical and methodological aspects of Bayesian shrinkage priors.
