Lorenzo is a first year student in the MPH - Global Health program at the University of Washington. Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia with an undergraduate background in Environmental Engineering, he has worked in various capacities as a researcher, most recently developing novel diagnostic tools for detecting risk of obstructed labor among prospective Ethiopian mothers in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Despite previous experience with device-based interventions, he became interested in SCOPE due to its community and faith-based approach in improving maternal and child health outcomes. After the SCOPE fellowship, he hopes to continue working with interventions that explore harnessing behavior change within communities to produce lasting, sustainable impact.

Lorenzo is also passionate about photography, the outdoors, and Ethiopian food.
