AffiliationsUniversity of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health, Department of Epidemiology
I am a Graduate Research Assistant with Project Tycho since January 2017, assisting with the extraction and analysis of vector borne disease data for computer modeling. I also provide information for the Project Tycho website. I am currently an MPH student in the Department of Epidemiology at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health (GSPH). In 2013, I received my BAs in Biology and Anthropology from Bucknell University.
Through the Peace Corps Masters International (PCMI) program, I combined my graduate studies at Pitt Public Health with the Peace Corps as a Community Health Development Volunteer in Zambia from 2014-2016. During my service, I carried out various prevention programs for HIV and malaria, a nutritional rehabilitation intervention for underweight children under 5, as well as wrote and managed a small grant to build a community vegetable market. My research interests include infectious diseases, malnutrition, disease monitoring and surveillance systems, and the development of sustainable public health interventions for low-resource settings. I also enjoy the outdoors, running, traveling, and trying new foods.
