Class of 2025
University of Michigan


I am so excited to continue training at the University of Michigan, where I have learned so much from my mentors in both medicine and philosophy! I still have so much to learn, and I know this will be a wonderful place to keep refining my knowledge and my skills. I am also grateful to keep working and studying in a place that I feel is unusually committed to interdisciplinary thinking and scholarship, which is so important for a complex field like psychiatry. In my spare time, I love to spend time with my partner Katharine, read, watch shows, and chat about philosophy.
