    Meera

    Writer,

    Founder

     

    Meera is a writer who studied sociomedical sciences and infectious disease epidemiology at Columbia University. She dreamed up Case Confirmed in 2018 as a way to explore new ideas in public health. Luckily, she met Vijeta and Dina not long afterwards! She loves writing surreal fiction, podcasting, coffee, fitness, vegan cooking, and learning new things. As a creative, she is always working on multiple projects, excited by the joy of creating something new. She runs her own freelance writing business.

    Vijeta

    Senior

    Biostatistician

     

    Vijeta is a senior biostatistician who grew up in the US Virgin Islands. She is interested in using inferential and predictive modeling to identify risk factors that can inform public health, healthcare interventions, and policy changes. She has worked in clinical, academic, consulting, and industry settings in Boston. She contributes extensive biostatistics expertise in retrospective, prospective, longitudinal, clinical trial, outcomes, and real-world evidence arenas. She also enjoys teaching university students biostatistics and programming (SAS). When she isn’t being a data nerd, you can often find her dreaming about the sand, doing yoga, reading, cooking, listening to the piano and bansuri, and learning about different cultures. She hopes to be able to speak 7 languages fluently one day!

    Dina

    Maternal & Child Health Researcher

     

    Dina works in a Boston hospital as a researcher in the Division of Global Health Equity, has a background in HIV research and LGBTQ+ health, and side hustles as a childbirth educator. She has an MPH from Boston University and BA in Women & Gender Studies from UMass Boston. She is passionate about all things reproductive justice and guarantees she can connect (almost) any issue back to this lens. When she’s not talking about how cool public health is, Dina can be found planning her next trip, looking through her many cookbooks for pictures of recipes (but not actually cooking any), or obsessing over her grandmother.
