I am passionate about public health specifically infectious disease epidemiology in low-income nations. My passion for public health stems from the research I did as an undergraduate student at the University of Iowa in the College of Public Health. The LSAMP program allowed me to do research in the field I am passionate about. Being apart of the LSAMP program as an undergraduate student I learned so much from going to the conferences, and building networks that helped me become the researcher I am today.
