About Me


Hi, I’m Annaliese! I am a PhD candidate in the Perkins Lab at the University of Notre Dame with an expected graduation in May 2023. I am interested in statistics and modeling applied to decision-making, infectious diseases, and clinical trials.

Skills and Interests

I am a PhD candidate in Biological Sciences at the University of Notre Dame, and I am also doing a master’s degree in Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics. I have a dual major bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Biology from a small liberal arts college in Kansas.

I began statistical programming while doing an REU at the University of Georgia in 2016, and I haven’t looked back. I have expertise in statistical programming using R and also have data analysis skills using Python and SQL. I use techniques from survival analysis, generalized linear models, and time series analysis in my research, and I enjoy learning about and implementing new modeling techniques and algorithms.

You can view my resume for a brief summary of my skills and experience.

You can find my latest publication on COVID-19 and school re-openings here.

I have many hobbies, including language learning (English is my native language, and I have studied French, Spanish, German, Russian, Italian and Norwegian). I also love experiencing cultures through travel, cooking, and international film.
