I am a graduate student in my first year reading for an MPhil in Comparative Social Policy. I graduated from Williams College in 2017, where I majored in biology and completed the pre-medical track. My senior honors thesis investigated the role of the proteins ASAP1 and Non-Muscle Myosin in regulating the cellular membrane.
Coming from a science background but studying a wide range of subjects for my undergraduate degree, I was drawn to the interdisciplinary approach of the department and am excited to work and study with a group of people holding a diverse array of backgrounds and interests. I am specifically interested in the shift towards establishing national provision of universal health coverage as well as the effects of different payment and provision models on health outcomes and cost.
