Leather Room at University House, Professors Walk, University of Melbourne
Caroline S. Park
2016 U.S. Fulbright Anne Wexler Scholarship in Public Policy
Home institution: Harvard University
Host institution: University of Melbourne, School of Population and Global Health
A native of Whippany, New Jersey, Caroline received her undergraduate education at Harvard University in Human Developmental and Regenerative Biology, with a secondary field in Economics. She is currently pursuing a Master of Public Health at the University of Melbourne on the 2016 U.S. Fulbright Anne Wexler Scholarship in Public Policy. She will pursue research at the intersection of climate change and public health; she is specifically interested in how vulnerable populations respond to climate-induced fluctuations in fishery and agricultural output, and how their nutritional status is moderated by both socioeconomic and physiological factors.
During her undergraduate years, Caroline studied metabolic syndrome at the Cowan Laboratory of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute. As a Herchel Smith Fellow in 2016, she researched the effects of maternal malnutrition on fetal development. An avid traveler, Caroline has also worked on various humanitarian projects throughout Southeast Asia and southern Africa.
Caroline is keen to share with us her interests in planetary health, and explore ideas for her research.
Please RSVP to Elizabeth Brooke <firstname.lastname@example.org> ASAP, because space is limited in the intimate Leather Room.
