I am a senior double majoring in IGS and Economics. I am especially interested in exploring equitable and sustainable economic frameworks for international development, as well as understanding how social and cultural practices among people with different backgrounds can be used to facilitate intercultural communications. Outside of being an UDR, I worked as an undergraduate research intern in Roland Berger strategy consulting company in Shanghai, China. For this past summer, I participated in a marketing analysis program in Publicis Groupe (China) which helped enterprises to optimize and improve their current marketing strategies. If you are interested in any fields mentioned above, don't hesitate to contact me and I am more than happy to give you my advice!

I am a senior double majoring in IGS and HSSP with a minor in Economics. I am interested in global health and am applying to be a Peace Corps Health Volunteer. I have been working with Dr. Uretsky for the past year on research related to East and West African migrants in Guangzhou China. Outside of being a UDR, I am very involved in music ensembles on campus: Wind Ensemble, Top Score, and MAD Band. Two summers ago (Summer 2019) I studied abroad with CET Academic programs in Taipei, Taiwan, and interned at Taiwan's Democratic Progressive Party during the country's presidential election. This past summer I worked with Love4Bukwo Hospital in order to bring accessible healthcare to the communities in Bukwo, Uganda, and nearby towns in Kenya. If you have any interest or questions about the above activities in East Asia or East Africa, feel free to contact me!
