I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biostatistics at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Prior to this, I completed my PhD in Biostatistics from University of Minnesota under the supervision of Dr. Sudipto Banerjee and Dr. Hui Zou.

I'm interested in all aspects of spatial and spatio-temporal statistics . Application areas include air pollution , ecology and forestry data. I'm also working on spatial disease mapping and plan to explore spatial models for neuroimaging, Earth system models and assessing health effects of environmental exposure. My research interests also include developing the theory and methodology for high-dimensional data , small area estimation , and Bayesian hierarchical models . See my research page for more details on my projects.

RA opportunity: I'm looking for PhD students to work on ongoing projects on spatial statistics and small area estimation. Currently there is funding for the following projects: If you're interested to work on any of these projects, please contact me. If you've a dataset or an idea for a project, and want to discuss with me, feel free to email me or walk into my office anytime I'm there.
