About Me

I am currently a PhD student at the Statistics department at Penn State University, co-advised by Dr. David Hunter, Dr. Le Bao and Dr. Xiaoyue Niu. I received my B.S. in Mathematics, advised by Dr. Detlef Dürr, in 2012 and my M.S. in Statistics, advised by Dr. Göran Kauermann, in 2015 from the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich. Currently, I am working on developing models to improve network scale-up data, which has the goal to estimate the size of hidden or unknown populations.

In 2016, I started working as a research assistant for Dr. Bruce Desmarais. In our current project, we are studying the U.S. Supreme Court citation network using citation-based temporal exponential random graph models.
