I spent 8 weeks at Resources for the Future (a non-profit, nonpartisan think-tank dedicated to sustainability, environment, and health) working with the malaria researcher David Smith. I did an independent project evaluating the impact of insecticide-treated bed nets on malaria transmission factors in Sub-Saharan Africa, a topic that is much needed in research and scientific knowledge, yet has not been extensively explored. I am hoping to publish my review paper in the Malaria Journal.
