PhD student in Population Health Sciences (Epidemiology), 2016 - 2020?
MS in Epidemiology, 2016
University of California, Berkeley
AB in Comparative Literature / Community Health, 2011
I’m currently a PhD student in the Program in Population Health Sciences and the Department of Epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. My research interests are in epidemiologic methods as well as reproductive and child health. I developed these interests at U.C. Berkeley, where I earned my M.S. in epidemiology, and while teaching third grade at Little Wound School in Kyle, SD, where I lived for three years. Prior to that I studied comparative literature (focusing on literary translation from French and Portuguese) and community health at Brown University.
My passion for teaching has continued beyond my experience in elementary education. I enjoy introducing students to epidemiology and biostatistics as well as delving into more advanced topics. I love to create teaching materials, an example of which can be found here.
I also love hiking and camping, reading novels, and programming in R.
