I am an Assistant Professor of Statistics at Macalester College in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science. My research interests lie in the application of statistics to study biology (particularly with high-throughput techonolgies), medicine, epidemiology, and public health. I am also interested in how humans interact with data in ways that impact analysis, understanding, and scientific communication.
I received my PhD in biostatistics from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health where I worked with Kasper Daniel Hansen on statistical methodology for high-throughput biology and with Jeff Leek and Leah Jager on understanding the role of human behavior in data analysis.
My last name is pronounced mee-int. A common mispronunciation that is quite understandable given the spelling is my-int. While this can be amusing from a computer science perspective, it is, nevertheless, incorrect!

I will be teaching the following courses at Macalester for the 2018-9 academic year.
I am an avid Dungeons and Dragons player and game enthusiast, and I love finding ways to bring coding and analysis into these beloved hobbies of mine. As a result, I have a few side projects devoted entirely to fun!
