I am currently a psychology doctoral student at Penn State, and received a BS in psychology from Brigham Young University. My research focuses on college student mental health, statistical methods for analyzing longitudinal psychotherapy outcome data, and the prediction of psychotherapy outcomes. I also work as a data analyst for The Center for Collegiate Mental Health (CCMH), a network of 550+ college counseling centers collecting standardized data on college students seeking mental health treatment. After graduating, I hope to attain a data science position.

Much of my time is spent playing with data in R, both for work and for fun. I enjoy visualizations, tidy data, and knitting Rmarkdown documents. This blog is a way for me to consolidate and share things I learn in R. On my blog, you can check out some projects I’ve done, as well as a gallery of some of the visualizations I’ve created. You can also find a list of my publications and my resume. Enjoy!
