I attended Yale College as a Fine Arts major and worked as an arts writer and editor prior to attending Yale School of Medicine (YSM). As a medical student, my research centered on race and racism in medical education and history of science and medicine. Since joining the Yale psychiatry residency, I have continued research on this topic as well as related teaching for medical students and residents. While in residency, I worked with faculty, peers, and medical students at Yale to found RebPsych, a conference on the intersection of mental health and social justice. I also serve as a co-leader History, Health, and Humanities, a multidisciplinary reading group which explores how humanities scholarship can influence how we think about health and the delivery of healthcare.
