Hi, I'm Steph! I joined PatientsLikeMe as a Data Scientist in September 2014. I'm passionate about using data to inform health-related decisions made by patients, healthcare providers, researchers, and policy makers.
My academic background is in applied statistics and biochemistry. I received my master's degree in Statistical Practice from Carnegie Mellon University, where much of my work focused on epidemiological methods and statistical analysis of human rights data. Before joining the PLM team, I worked with a variety of interdisciplinary research groups, including the Southern California Injury Prevention Research Center and The New York Times. In my free time, I enjoy cooking/homebrewing/eating, playing ultimate frisbee, running, climbing, and drinking entirely too much coffee.
