UE Experiences

I wasn't sure what I wanted to do while I was an undergrad, and eventually decided during my sophomore year that biology would provide the best foundation for whatever I decided to do next. I loved microbiology, but found that I was drawn to the policy implications of scientific research. I tried to tie my major and minor together as much as possible through the topics I chose for papers and presentations. I'm thankful that the Biology and Political Science departments were both very supportive in this. After graduating, I decided that I wanted to get a masters in public health and found a program that focused specifically in infectious diseases. Having studied abroad in Australia during my junior year, I felt confident about my ability to move to the UK and complete my degree there. While taking masters courses, I found that health economics could be the bridge between science and policy that I had been looking for. I have been working as a health economist for the past 10 years, which has taken me from the UK to Thailand and now Australia.
