Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi! I am a 4th year at Berkeley studying environmental justice and social science frameworks for climate solutions. This past summer I worked as an intern with UCSF to develop climate change curriculum for high school students, and I'm really excited to learn about climate change from younger perspectives.

On campus I work at the Student Environmental Resource Center, where I focus on facilitating anti-racist and social justice oriented programming for Berkeley's eco-community.

I am super interested in feminist literature and how to apply gender lenses to public health and climate change :)
