Pedagogy Fellow in Global Health
Farah is a 5th year doctoral student in the social and behavioral sciences at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Her research investigates the early life origins of cardiometabolic disease, focusing specifically on psychosocial pathways by which social adversity gets under the skin. Her research will contribute to a growing body of work exploring the interplay between children's social environments, emotional well-being, and physical health, and the ways positive resources may buffer children against poor mental and physical health over the life course. Farah holds a M.H.S. in child health and development from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and a B.A. in writing from Johns Hopkins University. In her spare time, she loves to cook, stay active, and explore Boston's food and arts scene.
