I am a third year medical student, with interests in health disparities, public health, policy, innovative healthcare technology, medical journalism, and social entrepreneurship. I also have a strong research background, having 7 years of experience in both translational and benchside research. The primary area of my research is the molecular underpinnings of neurological diseases, which related to my undergraduate degree in molecular biology. I have a strong belief in working with underserved populations. Currently, I am working to do well in school while expanding my medical horizons.
