I studied Neuroscience & Behavior and Economics at Wesleyan University, where I also worked as an admissions tour guide, a writing tutor, a fitness instructor, wrote opinion-editorials for the student newspaper, ran a ride-share service called FRUBER (Fred-Uber), and served as the coordinator of Wesleyan’s Hunger and Homelessness Program.
I previously conducted research on the components that forge healthy communities among humans, the use of psychotherapy in reducing adolescent substance use and violent behavior, and the adaption of techniques from behavioral economics to increase up-take of health insurance.
I’m currently serving as a City Year AmeriCorps member in Detroit Public Schools Community District, providing academic and emotional-behavioral support to third and fourth graders. I also lead MCAT courses and tutor pre-medical students with Kaplan Test Prep.
I will matriculate to medical school in Fall 2019. At present, I plan to specialize in family medicine or another area of primary care.
work//life is a collection of analytical pieces on the economy, healthcare, and psychology as well as strategies and tactics to boost productivity and well-being.
What’s My Plan?
I aim to play an active role in health care and education policy and craft solutions to reach social equity in the United States. I am most interested in translating findings from social and behavioral science into effective public policies and clinical interventions that mitigate health disparities, particularly those that are based on geographic stratification.
My life goals serve as guiding principles around which I shape my activities and priorities on a weekly and monthly basis.
