    My research examines structural drivers of infectious disease and gender-based violence in the United States and sub-Saharan Africa with a focus on the intersection of race, gender, and economic inequality. I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in South Africa from 2006-2008 and as a Fulbright Scholar in Swaziland in 2013-2014.
