While completing my MPhil in Musicology at Cambridge--during which I completed a dissertation on film music--I unearthed an interest in studying geography. After a couple of years working in university administration and joining the Teach for America program, I completed a PhD in Geography at UC Berkeley, where I studied the history of urban development and city planning. Since graduating in 2016, I have taught global studies, politics, and history at two high schools and spent three years at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a Geospatial Analyst and Project Manger. I now work for Esri, the world's leading GIS company, as the Global Health Portfolio Lead. In this role, I help health organizations large and small harness the power of geospatial technology to solve the world's most pressing public health challenges.
