Shivani is a Master’s student in Environmental Health and concentrator in Maternal and Child Health at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Her interests center on leveraging translational research to reduce racial health disparities manifest in the built environment. She hopes that this work can bridge the existing gap between communities, private organizations, and government, ultimately creating healthier physical and social environments for people to live.
Shivani recently graduated from Haverford College with dual-degrees in Chemistry and Health & Societies and has worked with the Science Research team at Propeller Health for several years. During that time, she conducted research aiming to understand the relationship between environmental and social determinants of chronic respiratory disease and its role in the development of more accessible digital health solutions. She has also been involved in developing health economic content for providers and payers on the benefits of using digital health solutions in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic respiratory disease and obstructive sleep apnea. After her Master’s, Shivani intends to earn her PhD in Environmental Health and become a leader in community-based participatory research.
