Hi! I’m Abby and I live in San Francisco.

I’m broadly interested in making tools from statistics and machine learning more transparent, useful, and ethical. I focus on problems with significant societal impact, such as climate change and public health.

I received my PhD in Statistics from UChicago earlier this summer, advised by Becca Willett. Before that, I worked for a few years as a data scientist at Doximity. I graduated with a math degree from Grinnell College in 2014.

I had a great time organizing Women in Data Science Chicago during grad school, and have been involved in a number of data science for social good initiatives such as the Data Science Working Group at Code for San Francisco and the Center for Data Science and Public Policy. Outside of this stuff, I love to travel, eat, drink wine, and do a bunch of weird crafts.
