I am an Investigator at the Brown University School of Public Health. In 2021, I received my PhD in Health Services Research from the Brown University School of Public Health. My work focuses on the quality and equity of care delivered to marginalized populations. I am specifically interested in the roles of Medicaid policy and care delivery reform on improving patient experience in the health care safety net. My work has been published in Health Affairs, American Journal of Public Health, and Journal of General Internal Medicine.
While at Brown, I was selected as a Health Policy Research Scholar. This is a national leadership program supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to build equity by investing in scholars from populations traditionally underrepresented in graduate programs whose research will inform and influence policy toward a Culture of Health.
I have previously worked as a Health Policy Analyst at RTI International and a Research Project Manager in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
I received a Master of Science in Health Policy and Management from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and a Bachelor of Science in Public Health in Health Policy and Management from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Gillings School of Global Public Health.
