I’m a sophomore and CAS Presidential Honors Scholar majoring in Global Public Health with a Sociology concentration. My research interests include studying how to mitigate health disparities regarding mental health access and food insecurity in racial/ethnic minority populations, as well as exploring how acculturation influences minorities’ wellbeing. Currently, I’m working as a Research Assistant in NYU Steinhardt’s Culture, Emotion & Health Lab where we study the efficacy of psychosocial interventions to help Asian Americans overcome cultural barriers to reduce the burden of cancer experienced by ethnic minority cancer survivors. After graduation, I hope to pursue a Master of Public Health degree and eventually a PhD in Public Health with aspirations of becoming a professor and researcher. Outside of research, I’m a NYU Service Ambassador, an intern at the Department of Social Services, and a volunteer at Peer Health Exchange. In my free time, I enjoy baking, hiking and photography.
