Doctoral Student, Harvard University
It was a high school project on the Black Plague that peaked my interest in disease transmission and epidemics, which led me to choose my First-Year Seminar, “Epidemics and the Promise of Biotechnology.” Through that course, I was able to learn about influenza pandemics, cholera transmission, and more. Although I didn’t understand that these topics were related then, I was long ago set on a path to public health.
