BA in biology/environmental sciences – Brandeis University, Waltham, MA

I was born and raised in Boston Massachusetts. At Brandeis University I studied Biology and Environmental Studies and became deeply interested in the genomics and evolution. During this time, I was a research intern at the Harvard School of Public Health and studied epigenetic outcomes from exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals. After graduating, I worked as a clinical researcher at Boston Children’s Hospital in their Primary Care Department. There, I worked on “The Iron Baby Study” which analyzed comorbidity between Iron Defiance Anemia and Malaria. I am currently a Master’s in Public Health Candidate and at the Yale School of Public Health with a focus in epidemiology of microbial disease. I’m interested vector born illness, genomics, and infectious disease evolution. Outside of the lab you can find me on the tennis courts, hiking in the woods, or walking my dog around New Haven.
