I am a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health Policy Research Scholar using mixed methods to analyze how policy, law, ethics, and management operate at the nexus of criminal legal and health systems. Related research focuses on social safety net policies as determinants of health and safety with an aim to reduce harms.
I was a Fulbright grantee and USAID Research and Innovation fellow in South Africa. I am on the editorial boards of Journal of Correctional Health Care, American Journal of Preventive Medicine (AJPM) Focus, Public Integrity, and World Medical & Health Policy. I collaborate with Scholars Strategy Network and community-led criminal legal and health research and policy initiatives.
I received a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree from UC Berkeley and a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree from Columbia University. I am completing a JD and PhD degrees at The New School, where I am affiliated with the Institute on Race, Power, and Political Economy. I am a UC Berkeley Prytanean Honor Society Alumnae board member and Cal Alumni Association liaison.
I have been a preceptor and lecturer with Princeton University School of Public and International Affairs; The New School Department of Politics and Social Science Fellowship; and Rutgers School of Criminal Justice and New Jersey Scholarship and Transformative Education in Prisons consortium.
