I am a first-year student in the Doctorate program in Environmental Science and Engineering at UCLA in the Institute of Environment and Sustainability. I received my Masters in Public Health from the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health in 2014. I’ve had experience working in both the government sector, as well as the private consulting sector. I received a B.S. in Physiology from Seattle Pacific University in 2011. My background in biological and chemical sciences, and my interest in environmental policy and regulations deepen my understanding of the environmental issues our local communities face and the solutions that will make a difference. I am eager to contribute to the multifaceted work that seeks to protect our environment and our public health.
