BioI am a 5th year PhD in Public Health student specializing in Epidemiology. I have a Bachelor's of Science in Public Health, a Master's in Public Health degree for Epidemiology and Global Health, and two additional graduate certificates in Infectious Disease Epidemiology and Applied Biostatistics. I am also a certified public health professional (CPH). I am trained as an epidemiologist and global health practitioner, therefore, am comfortable both with data analysis and field work/program implementation. I work a variety of different research projects with topics ranging from Maternal and Childhood health to Infectious Diseases. As a first-generation student, I am familiar with mentorship, both having a mentor and being a mentor myself. I aim to mentor highly motivated students who like asking questions and exploring a variety of topics. I enjoy guiding students and watching their learning process.
