I've written for The Atlantic, The Nation, The Root, and The Huffington Post, among others. I write a monthly blog about the impact of discrimination on public health at PLOS (The Public Library of Science).
My work has been featured by MSNBC's The Cycle, BET, Ebony, The Verge, ThinkProgress, The Root, Big Think, and others. I've given talks at Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Yale, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and other universities.
Currently, I research health care and fragile states in the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School. I also work for Transition Magazine at the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research. In the past, I conducted research at Children's Hospital Boston, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Law School's Program on Disability, and Stony Brook's HIV Treatment Development Center.
I hold a master's in Religion, Ethics, and Politics from Harvard Divinity School and a BA in Philosophy from Pennsylvania State University.
