Before my time at Yale, I graduated from the University of Virginia with an honors B.A. in Political & Social Thought and Anthropology in 2014. I then worked for two years as a project manager and research assistant at The Hastings Center, a bioethics institute in the Hudson River Valley, before earning my M.A. in Social Science at the University of Chicago in 2017.
