Hello Adamsians! I am a sixth-year MD-PhD student at Harvard Medical School currently in my fourth year of a PhD in Population Health Sciences at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, where I focus on applied epidemiology methods and surgical outcomes. I graduated from Yale in 2014 with a degree in History of Science and Medicine. After graduating, I spent a year doing research on flu vaccination in pregnancy in Malaysia on a Fulbright fellowship. In my down time, you can usually find me playing polo on a horse (any horse lovers – ask, and I’ll happily take you along!), doing Pilates in H square, or hanging out with friends and family. In Adams, I am Co-Chair of the Pre-Medical Committee together with Varnel. This will be my fourth year as a tutor in Adams House and I’m so excited to spend another year with you all!

What’s bringing you joy right now?

pending hours outside with horses (who, fortunately, do not require social distancing), outdoor Pilates classes, music, and long phone calls with loved ones.

Things I love:
Traveling, horseback riding, running, my cats
