Hello! I'm Allison.

I'm a 4th year PhD candidate at Stanford's Institute for Computational & Mathematical Engineering . My research interests lie broadly at the intersection of economics and computer science, and my projects focus on machine learning and causal inference in the public health space. I am co-advised by Susan Athey and Hal Varian , and also work with the Stanford Computational Policy Lab .

Originally from the Washington, D.C. area, I shipped up to Boston to receive my Bachelor's in Mathematics with Computer Science from MIT, and then moved to New York to begin my career as an economic consultant . In my spare time, I enjoy music, travel, exploring the Bay Area , and wondering how I can scheme my way into a Planet Money episode.
