My interest in health science is related to mental health specifically the effects from violence. As a first year student my research plans are still being developed but currently I am planning a study with my advisor looking at hospital
medical records linked to health records to look at the relationship between showing up in the ER with an injury related to domestic violence in homicides
I received a bachelors degree in Health Science: Community and Public Health Education with a minor in psychology from Lock Haven University in Pennsylvania in 2019. I also became a Certified Health Education Specialist.
During my undergraduate career I focused my research on gap in services for domestic violence and youth mental health. During my time at UC Merced I hope to explore the link between mental health and violence.
