M.D./Ph.D. student in History, University of Pennsylvania

I am a dual-degree MD/PhD student in the Department of History and Sociology of Science. I have reached ABD status in my PhD program, and have one year left in medical school. I have published articles in Social Science & Medicine, the South African Historical Journal, the Journal of Viral Hepatitis and the Journal of Policy History. I have also contributed to an edited volume entitled Reimagining Global Health: an Introduction, edited by Paul Farmer and published by the University of California Press in 2013.
