  • I strengthen statistical estimation and causal inference using machine learning techniques.

  • I build data-analytic methods for personal digital health using an n-of-1 / single-case framework.

Bio

I am a biostatistician and data scientist at Evidation Health on the Digital Health Outcomes team. I'm also the creator and editor of Stats-of-1, a blog for personal digital health methodology. Before that, I was a research statistician and data scientist at Clarify Health, a healthcare tech company. I'd previously trained as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Stanford Prevention Research Center.

I'm a General Member of the International Collaborative Network (ICN) for N-of-1 Clinical Trials and Single-Case Experimental Designs (SCEDs), chaired by Prof. Jane Nikles and Dr. Suzanne McDonald. I also run the CASIA Project for individualized discovery of health-related causes and effects using machine learning and data from wearable devices, sensors, and apps. I call the theory and application of statistics for studying one individual's recurrent characteristics and patterns esametry (pronounced "ee-sa-metry"), from isa (pronounced "ee-SA"), the Filipino/Tagalog word for "one".

With the privileges I was given as a Brown Asian middle-class immigrant, I'd earned both my B.A. in Neurobiology / Cognitive Studies and M.P.S. in Applied Statistics at Cornell University, followed by my Dr.P.H. in Biostatistics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am also lucky to have been trained by Jesuits — twice.


Over 17+ years, my work in both industry and academia has spanned healthcare, pharmaceuticals, clinical trials, survey sampling, nutrition, maternal/child health, global/international health, and health promotion & disease prevention.

I'm interested in causal inference, n-of-1/single-subject studies, Quantified Self, longitudinal analysis, population/public health, minority health (focusing on Asian Americans, in particular Filipinos), the microbiome, and gun violence.

Here's a fun video by my brilliantly witty UNC friends in which I play a singing statistics professor: A Statistical New World (see Videos page for more clips)
