About

Welcome to the HumBio Core! I am so looking forward to getting to know you all! For me, the Core was such a formative and enriching experience during my time at Stanford. My concentration was Community Health in Underserved Populations, but the flexibility of the HumBio major allowed me to take courses in everything from genomics to global public health. I am a huge fan of the Human Biology Core because it emphasizes that science is not only a body of knowledge, but also a practice, with specific tenets on how to learn more about life. During my time at Stanford, I served as a live-in counselor at the Bridge Peer Counseling Center, volunteered at Arbor Free Clinic, and studied abroad in Santiago, Chile! After graduating from Stanford, I spent a year living in England pursuing a Master’s degree in Medical Anthropology at the University of Oxford. Outside of academics, I love to run, read, and meditate! I can’t wait to meet you all and help you get the most out of this incredible sequence of classes!
