College of Arts and Sciences Rising Senior

PPEH Summer Public Research Intern

2019 - 2019

I am a rising senior in the College of Arts and Sciences majoring in Urban Studies with a concentration in Environmental Studies, and a minor in Hispanic Studies. In my free time, I am a coordinator of Fossil Free Penn, a writer for Bloomers (Penn’s all-female comedy troupe) and an Urban Leadership Fellow with the Penn Institute for Urban Research. I am interested in the intersection of public policy and environmental justice, as well as the social determinants of urban health and how environmental variables, such as water and land contamination, exacerbate health disparities. At PPEH this summer, I am looking forward to exploring grassroots and governmental responses to environmental threats and learning more about how Philadelphia will address the challenges presented by climate change.
