I am excited to be a Delegate Candidate for Joe Biden and to support the Democratic Party in the 2020 election and beyond. I am an American living in Paris, hold a PhD in infectious diseases/microbiology, and currently work on international cooperation for infectious disease research. In these uncertain times, I am very aware of the importance of a strong decisive leader who works with technical experts in various disciplines to guide their country to safety. I value the role science plays in policy making for the future and I know that Joe Biden shares this value. I am excited for a positive change in US Leadership. Therefore, I pledge to support Joe Biden at the Democratic National Convention and in this year’s General Election and continue to work to ensure Americans overseas are always able to vote.
