History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine
Although I grew up in New York City, I spent two years in Jerusalem and a gap year in rural Peru before completing an undergraduate degree in History, and Global Health and Health Policy at Princeton University. As a History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine student at Cambridge, I am committed to the interdisciplinary mission of interrogating science and medicine through the lens of humanities. I will study fourteenth-century bureaucratic documents, using paleographic and digital humanities methods to explore the local effects of the plague on class relations and Jewish-Christian interactions. I seek to understand the public health issues facing our societies today in the context of experiences centuries ago. It is my goal to bring this unique medievalist perspective and training to the public policy sphere where I aspire to highlight voices often excluded from bureaucratic systems, and facilitate deep historical, culturally-specific approaches to public policy creation.
