What attracted you to the health metrics field?
I was initially attracted to the health metrics field because it combined my gifts and talents in math and quantitative analyses with an interest and passion for global health. As the former director-general of WHO Dr. Lee Jong-wook stated, “To make people count, we first need to be able to count people.”
What work are you doing at IHME?
Currently I am working on the Occupational and Environmental Risk Factors team, modeling air pollution – ambient, household, and ozone – and environmental radon as risk factors.
How do you think your experience at IHME will contribute to your future work?
I know that my experience at IHME will help me to build confidence, connections, and tools to bolster my future career in global health.
