Penn State University: BS Bioengineering (2014)


University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health, Department of Epidemiology


I am a Graduate Research Assistant for Project Tycho since May 2017. I am a current MPH student in the Department of Epidemiology at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health. In 2014, I received my BS in Bioengineering from Penn State University and a certificate in Community Engagement and Design.

Past projects I have worked on include detecting methanol in traditional Kenyan brews, designing inkjet printed test strips, and a custom table and chair to facilitate the physical and cognitive development of a child with long term disabilities. I served during the 2015-2016 AmeriCorps Term with the National Health Corps in Philadelphia where I focused on community health outreach and safe sleep education. My research interests are in applied epidemiology and infectious disease modeling. I also enjoy volunteering, traveling, and watching Penn State Football.
