Rachel matriculated to Yale in 2018 to pursue an MD-PhD in Yale School of Medicine and Yale School of Public Health. She graduated from Duke in 2016 with a double major in global health and psychology. During undergrad, she began conducting research in global health, specifically on the ways in which mental health and HIV are mutually reinforcing in rural Kenya. After graduating, she took a couple gap years: one to study malaria in sub-Saharan Africa at UCSF and another to study the intersection of nutrition, epigenetics, and cardiovascular disease at the Framingham Heart Study. Since coming to Yale, Rachel spent a summer in Kampala, Uganda learning about the relationship between TB and diabetes with the Davis Lab at Yale School of Public Health. She looks forward to further exploring her research interests in health disparities and mixed methods at YSM and YSPH.
