Public Health Interests
Current Public-Health Related Activities
My overarching goal in public health has been to better understand patients’ health and healthcare experience as they intersect with other aspects of their lived experience, rather than as isolated incidents. By understanding individuals’ expectations, experiences, and environment outside of the healthcare system, we can better meet their needs within the system and aim to provide more patient-centered care. Through my various roles as a Leonard Davis Institute Summer Undergraduate Minority Research (SUMR) Scholar, a research assistant in the Anesthesiology and Critical Care Department, and Fulbright Scholar, I am involved in a host of research experiences relevant to the field of public health and health services.
