I’m a Senior Data Scientist at Evidation Health, a new kind of health and measurement company that provides the world’s most innovative healthcare ecosystem players the technology and expertise they need to understand how everyday behavior and health interact. As part of the multi-disciplinary data science team at Evidation, I participate in hands-on work with projects that are exploring digital biomarker development and the unique health-related signals present within large-scale longitudinal patient-generated data, primarily for clients in the biopharma space.
Prior to Evidation, I was Director of Research and Development at Fitabase.
I completed my Ph.D. in Public Health Joint Doctoral Program at San Diego State University and the University of California, San Diego. I was advised by Kevin Patrick, Matt Bietz, Elva Arredondo, Scott Klemmer, Sheri Hartman, and Jeanne Nichols. My research was focused on understanding how individuals use physical activity tracking devices and how their use of different techniques impacted their behavior. You can read the full dissertation here: Discretionary self-monitoring of physical activity: A mixed-methods study of behavior change technique use and historical physical activity.

I live in Los Angeles with my wife, Laura. When we’re not working you can find us exercising, spending time with our friends, and trying to find the best breakfast burritos in LA. Current Fav: Rooster Truck
I’m an avid runner and ex-avid cyclist. If running is your thing you can follow along on Gyroscope or Strava.
On most Mondays (when I’m in town) you’ll find me running around the city with the amazing BlacklistLA group.
