How/Why Research? I was introduced to research in high school, and I immediately loved the idea of being able to study a specific topic in more detail and discover new information to add to the existing knowledge of that topic. For each of my research positions over the past several years, I have gotten involved by emailing professors whose research seemed interesting and asking if I could get involved.
Research Experience: I conduct research in global health policy and human rights. Over the past year, much of this research has focused on the COVID-19 response, studying how international organizations like WHO have responded to the pandemic. This research allows us to understand how certain policies may or may not be successful, which helps us to offer recommendations on the types of policies that countries and organizations should pursue in the future.
