Periodontics & Oral Medicine:Dental Hygiene




I am passionate about health equity, working at it from clinical and research perspectives. I am an MD student at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. In 2019, I graduated with my MPH in Health Behavior and Health Education from the University of Michigan, where I also received my BS in biochemistry and Spanish. My research interests include health policy and health behavior, including behavioral economics. I am also passionate about education, having taught courses on biostatistics, health behavior, and chemistry. Previously, I researched at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in Periodontics and Oral Medicine with Dr. William Giannobile, focusing on the development of regenerative treatments for periodontitis, like personalized scaffolds to deliver gene-therapy vectors.
