About me

I am an assistant policy researcher at RAND Corporation, a Ph.D. candidate at Pardee RAND Graduate School, an Adjunct Instructor at USC Sol Price School of Public Policy, and a visiting graduate student at Argonne National Laboratory.

My recent research uses modeling to inform health policy. Most of my recent work focused on pressing COVID-19 policy questions. My work generated recommendations for crafting COVID-19 reopening plans, based on a stress-test of COVID-19 reopening strategies. I also helped build RAND’s COVID-19 Policy Tool, which became RAND’s most popular research of 2020. I am passionate about tackling complex and deeply uncertain policy questions with modeling and computing.

I also teach statistics at USC Sol Price School of Public Policy. Prior to coming to the US, I was a lecturer at UNISINOS, where I taught simulation modeling and other courses in engineering and management programs. Besides teaching and doing research, I enjoy working on consulting projects with a modeling component.
