Research Interests
My primary research interests center around health disparities, systemic barriers to equitable healthcare allocation and access, and bioethical dilemmas in public health both domestically and abroad. As an undergraduate concentrating in History and Literature, my thesis research questioned how contemporary epidemiological theories and medical advancements understand the disparity in cardiovascular disease. I sought to interrogate how these frameworks were understood publicly, in scientific media as well as in news media. Further, I questioned how these understandings lent to collective assumptions about implicit social versus biological framings of race. As I seek a Master’s degree in Bioethics, I join the GRAPE team as a student researcher, and I hope to incorporate my interdisciplinary background in their ongoing epidemiological research.
