Pre-Med Committee, BGLTQ Advisor
I'm Anna-Sophia, or A-S (she/her), and I'm a third-year in the MD-PhD program starting my PhD in Chemical Biology. I grew up in NY, studied Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry and English Lit as a Yale undergrad, and this trajectory up the New England coast has most recently brought me here, to Harvard! I've loved virology since before it was 'cool' (and am really looking forward to it hopefully becoming a little less relevant in our day-to-day), and my PhD will be studying RNA viruses. I'm also always excited about space medicine, literary theory, queer health, health equity, and global health. If I'm not in lab, you can find me drawing, hiking, singing, propagating more plants than I can fit in my room, and acquiring piles of new books before I've read my old ones. If you want to chat about medicine, books, research, art, music, plants, viruses, outer space, just want a warm cup of tea, or quite literally anything else, please don't hesitate to reach out! I'm so excited to get to know you all.
