Biography:

Marina arrives at Cambridge following more than two years as a research assistant at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), a nonprofit organization based in Boston, Massachusetts. At IHI, she conducted research on a range of health care topics, including governing quality at the health care organization board level, reducing disparities in infant mortality in the United States, improving care for patients with complex needs, and measuring patient safety. Previously, she completed internships in health journalism and communications in addition to interning with the State of Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs, where she conducted research and drafted a report on recommendations by the Alzheimer’s and Related Dementias Acute Care Advisory Committee. Marina is looking forward to exploring new areas of interest at Cambridge, including culture policy, with a global perspective. 

 

Marina holds a BA from Brown University (2017), where she studied Public Health and English Literature. Her thesis analysed the evolution of the depiction of aging and older characters in Jane Austen’s novels.
