BA in Biochemistry – Ripon College (Wisconsin)


Originally from the Midwest, I have a deep love for all things Minnesota. At Ripon College, I studied Biochemistry and developed a passion for an intersectional approach to research. During this time, I was involved in a study at the Medical College of Wisconsin investigating functionality of receptors within the cholesterol efflux pathway. At Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in the department of Molecular Cardiovascular Biology, I worked as an intern to study novel gene expression in congenital heart defects. It was during this time that I developed an interest in the intersection between bench research and broader public health concerns. Here at Yale School of Public Health, I am Master’s in Public Health candidate with a focus on the epidemiology of microbial disease. I’m interested in vector biology, infectious disease evolution, and disease modeling. When not in the lab, you can find me exploring the New Haven food scene and scrolling through pictures of my five cats.
