    Personal Statement

    My US government based fellowship was awarded for research in the city of Salvador, Brazil, where I worked for nine-months on an interdisciplinary project targeting Leptospirosis. More specifically, I coordinated a Photovoice (photography) project with youth to explore their perceptions and practices which will complement objective risk measures to inform future local interventions. As a continuation of my work I will support the ecologists, epidemiologists and social sciences in the final steps of data collection and subsequently data analyses and manuscript preparation.
