Biography

Jada is a Biological Sciences student currently pursing a Master's in Biology (Biology and Society) through the Accelerated Master's Program (4+1). Outside of ASU, Jada has successfully completed a vehicular internship with Phoenix Fire Department, and is now working as a paramedic. EMS and hospital experiences have helped Jada to develop an interest in the medical field, and wishes to continue onto medical school to become a physician. With a deep interest and fascination with medicine, she has always wondered about how medicine and disease processes help shape the human society. For research, Jada is primarily interested in the emerging epidemic of Zika virus— believing that what is considered as a mild disease or mild virus is not-so-mild, and can have devastating effects on the human society. She wishes to do further investigations on the societal interaction with Zika virus, specifically through established protocols regarding epidemics through local and national agencies.
