    Clinical and Population Health Research PhD Y3/rising MS4 (class of 2017)
    I am currently a 6th year MD/PhD student at UMass Medical School in the Clinical and Population Health PhD Program of the Quantitative Health Sciences Department. My dissertation is on organ (liver) allocation policy and outcomes and I am fortunate to be co-mentored by both the UMass Chief of Transplant & Hepatobiliary Surgery Division and the Director of the Center for Outcomes Research. I also have a background in bioethics and am active in the field, serving as a Guest Editor for the AMA Journal of Ethics and as the Medical Student Representative for the Massachusetts Medical Society Ethics, Grievances & Professional Standards Committee.

    I am a 4th year MD/MBA candidate at Tufts University School of Medicine and Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University. As an undergraduate, I studied philosophy helping me develop an intellectual curiosity and critical thinking skills. I learned to question assumptions and defend beliefs with rigorous argumentation while also being open to new ideas. Areas of interest include healthcare policy, behavioral economics, and academic medicine. I am currently applying for resident positions in Ophthalmology and hope to pursue a career in academic ophthalmology.
