Giri Viswanathan (TD ’25) is a Global Affairs major from Pittsburgh, PA. As an AmeriCorps member who served as a STEM educator during the COVID-19 pandemic, Giri grew fascinated by the interplay of governments and community stakeholders in shaping how his youth experienced and learned from the pandemic. At Yale, Giri is interested in exploring global health as a pathway to bridge his interests in healthcare and public policy. He aspires to pursue a career at the intersection of clinical medicine and health policy to safeguard fair and efficient access to healthcare in communities that need it most. Outside the classroom, Giri enjoys singing with the Yale Spizzwinks(?), photographing and writing about public health for the Yale Daily News, and conducting health economics research in the Goshua Lab for Decision Sciences. In his free time, you can find Giri biking around New Haven, playing jazz guitar, or cracking the code on the perfect omelette recipe.
