Research interests: Prior to my MPH, I was a practicing small animal veterinarian for four years. Perhaps unsurprisingly, my main research interests fall within the One Health initiative – focusing on the intersection of human, animal and environmental health – especially as applied to zoonotic and vector-borne diseases. During my MPH, I gained an interest in health disparities and in GIS, and hope to incorporate these into future research. Outside interests include travel, art, reading, running, hiking, and of course, spending time with my cat and dogs.
