Sara is a first-year graduate student in the Sociomedical Sciences department, studying history and public health. She is interested in examining the relationship between population control, women's rights, and terrorism, using history as a lens to examine the forces that influence social mobility and contribute to violent political outcomes. The goal of her research is to reframe terrorism as a public health issue that can be addressed without the use of military force.


Sara received her undergraduate degree in the History of Science from Yale university.
