I have defended my PhD thesis in summer 2013 and am currently working on finalizing
my thesis as well as writing two papers on colorectal cancer mortality.
I will be joining the Analytics team
of Wikimedia Foundation in winter 2014 as a research scientist.
I taught MS&E-111/ENGR-62 in spring 2013.
My current research interests are in the intersection of optimization modeling and building predictive models. Specifically, I am interested in utilizing optimization modeling and modern statistical methods to problems concerning the healthcare system. My advisor is Margrét Bjarnadóttir.
