Gender, Society, and Health

For the past 20 years I have dedicated my life both in academia and as an activist to deepening my understanding and responsibility to embracing social justice with an intersectionality framework. As a PhD student I hope to continue to address issues of inequity and lack of diversity in the many systems that our world unfairly privileges some groups over others. I plan to do so, by publishing articles addressing intersectionality and social justice as well as provide anti-oppression trainings for systems.
