University of Pittsburgh: BA Anthropology (2016)
I am a Graduate Research Assistant for Project Tycho since January 2017. I collect qualitative data regarding vaccine coverage and why certain groups of people do not vaccinate in the United States and Europe. I am currently an MPH-MIC student in the Department of Infectious Diseases and Microbiology at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health (GSPH). I received my BA in Anthropology from the University of Pittsburgh in August 2016.
I am currently a full-time Research Technician for the University of Pittsburgh's Resuscitation Logistics and Informatics Venture which is generously funded by the Hillman Foundation. During my undergraduate career, I gained public health experience through the Summer Edge Program with GSPH. My main research interests include reducing vaccine hesitancy through education, emerging diseases research, global health, and opioid overdose prevention. In my spare time, I love to travel to all corners of the world and read. I also have a love for animals and protecting the environment as best as I can.
