Biography

Hi everyone, I’m so excited to be the internal director for D&I this year!

I’m a senior majoring in anthropology and minoring in medical geography in global health with a certificate in medical anthropology. I’m also planning on attending law school after undergrad and hopefully working in health policy someday!

My research is in medical anthropology, and I’m currently working on analyzing racism and definitions of race within prominent biomedical journals released between 2006-2020. I’m very interested in intersectional feminism, abolition, and political theory.

In my free time, I love going to the gym, doing yoga, biking, and reading!
