Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hello! My name is Sarah, and I'm JHU junior studying "Medicine, Science, and the Humanities." You might be able to tell from my major: I'm fascinated by -several- different fields. I'm especially interested in the ways we can integrate those seemingly disparate fields in order to arrive at new ways of understanding. I'm excited to teach you examples of how that's possible!
