 I'm an MPH student in Health Policy at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. My interests lie at the nexus of public health and law, specifically looking at how marginalized communities are adversely affected by laws and policies and how the combination of advocacy and the legal system can be used to remedy these injustices. A lot of my work currently revolves around LGBTQ+, HIV, and Hepatitis C issues at the federal and state level.
