Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a junior B.S., Mathematics major in Yale College and M.P.H., Biostatistics student in the Yale School of Public Health. I'm interested in developing and conducting public health research studies, particularly concerning maternal-infantile health concerns and climate change impacts in Latin America. In fact, I studied the former for eight weeks in Buenos Aires and Concepción del Uruguay, Argentina this past summer. I'm also the Blood Drive Coordinator for the American Red Cross at Yale, so I'm very interested in the physiology of blood and the cardiovascular system as well as the social, cultural, and ethical discussions surrounding blood and organ donation.

S3634: Vampire 101: Intro. to Blood in Splash Spring 19 (Apr. 06, 2019)

We'll begin with an explanation of the physiology of blood and the cardiovascular system—how it works normally, what can go wrong, and how it differs between people. Then, we'll discuss blood donation and transfusion—the process, the biomedical blood supply, and scientific and ethical considerations of regulation—as well as any other questions or topics brought up by you!
