- What inspires you to do research?
My hope is to use research to improve care to the populations that are left behind in our healthcare system, especially people of color, rural populations, and those without access to affordable care.
- Where do you hope to do your residency and why?
As a first-year student, I'm honestly not even sure what specialty I'll find myself in, much less where. But wherever it is, I hope it is an institution that values healthcare equity as much as excellence.
- Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
Before coming to medical school, I got a master's degree in ecology and spent seven years using drones and satellites to study the forests of South America.
