Picture of Nicholas Rodriguez

Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a Stanford undergrad in my junior year studying Human Biology, with a concentration in Child Healthcare and Policy. I'm on a pre-medical track, and hope to apply to MD/MPH joint degree programs in the next couple of years! My interests include the intersection of policy and research, and how the legislative process can better respond to changes in our understanding of the world around us.

I've been a Splash admin/teacher for almost 2 years now!
