Congratulate Me

I’ve got good news to announce, I’m going to be an assistant professor of medicine at UW starting in July. I definitely would not have thought I’d one day be in the school of medicine when I started my graduate studies in Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization, but I love global health research, and this is a good place to sit if I’m going to keep doing it. You’ll still find me here at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, but soon I’ll get to move offices.

    Congratulations! But won’t you have to explain to everyone there that you’re not a real doctor?

    andy: I can’t tell you anything about the pain in your knee, but if you die from it I’ll need to know how old you are.

    Pall: If supercrunching keep going like it’s been going, maybe the MDs will be the ones doing the explaining. πŸ™‚
