I am an undergraduate student from the Boston area, majoring in urban studies at Barnard College. My research interests lie in urban public health- in particular, the creation and accessibility of food systems in cities. I hope to pursue a career that aids in the creation of just, livable, and sustainable communities. In my free time, I enjoy living in and exploring the complexities of Manhattan, as well as yoga and eating.
