Biography

Curriculum Vitae

I am currently a clinical fellow in medicine at Harvard Medical School and am completing the final year of residency in internal medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital. My principal research interests lie in improving the delivery of primary health care both in the United States and, especially, in low-income countries. My current projects include several field-based randomized controlled trials designed to better understand and strengthen large-scale frontline health worker programs in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.

I graduated with a joint MD from Harvard Medical School and PhD in health policy and management from Harvard Business School in 2015. Prior to that, I obtained an MPA in development studies from Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, an MPhil in environment and development from the University of Cambridge, and a BA in anthropology and comparative religion from Harvard College, where I graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. I have previously held research and policy positions at the World Health Organization, Partners In Health, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. My work has been generously supported by the Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans, the Weiss Family Program Fund, Grand Challenges Canada, the United States Agency for International Development, the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab, the UBS Optimus Foundation, the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Global Health, and the International Growth Center.
