Rachel Longjohn


I am a third-year Statistics Ph.D. student at the University of California, Irvine being advised by Dr. Padhraic Smyth. My research interests include forensic statistics, spatial statistics, and human mobility data with an emphasis in statistical forensic analysis of user-generated event data extracted from digital devices.

In May 2019, I graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in Applied and Computational Mathematics and minors in Applied Analytics and Computer Programming. Outside of research, I enjoy crocheting, solving sudoku puzzles, watching movies, reading fantasy/sci-fi novels, and listening to classic rock music.
