I am currently a medical student at Yale University. Previously, I worked in Northwest China on a cohort of miners and metalworkers, examining the impact of environmental and occupational exposures, as well as historical factors, on women's reproductive health, funded by a Fulbright grant. I have also worked on TB at the World Health Organization and HIV at the Chinese Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. I earned my BS in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry as well as Global Affairs at Yale University, and my MPH in the Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases at the Yale School of Public Health. Over the course of exploring my interest in global health, at the special intersection of scientific research and international relations, as well as my own roots, I have come to realize two things: 1) That I share some part of my immigrant experience with migrants and minorities everywhere, and 2) that I have been incredibly fortunate compared to the vast majority of those migrants and minorities in terms of the support and opportunities I have been afforded. Now, I am particularly interested in learning about the special medical and legal challenges facing refugee and migrant populations, and doing what I can to improve the social and political dimensions surrounding the immigrant experience.
