I am a doctoral student in environmental health at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health. My interest in place-based environmental hazards that have implications for climate change, health and environmental justice began at Emory University, where I completed my Master of Public Health. During my time there, I had the pleasure of working on projects with vulnerable populations and collaborating with policymakers in India and Atlanta, GA. I continue to strive to identify disproportionate impacts of environmental hazards in my work and am committed to translating my research to affect equitable policymaking. I am currently examining the relationship of California oil/gas development relative to prenatal health outcomes and drinking water resources.
