Faculty & Staff Profiles

Assistant Professor, Public Health

I am an assistant professor in the department of public health sciences. I teach a number of courses for undergraduate public health students focusing on topics including global health, health behavior, and maternal health. Because I spent several years before pursuing a PhD working in program management and monitoring and evaluation in the field of global health, I infuse all of my courses with some of the practical skills necessary for the everyday practice of public health. My research focuses on accessibility of healthcare services for people with disabilities in low-and-middle-income countries with a particular emphasis on sexual and reproductive health. I am passionate about accessibility, both in healthcare and in the classroom, and teach my courses accordingly.
