Liana will join Redstone for a Summer 2019 Internship while completing her studies in Economics and Global Affairs at Yale University, where she is also a member of the Multidisciplinary Academic Program in Human Rights. She is passionate about addressing economic inequality, poverty alleviation, and creating fair, sustainable pathways to growth. In the past, she has conducted research on scaling community health systems in Uganda, investigated upward mobility in the Parisian suburbs, and worked in the financial stability division of the European Commission.
At Yale, she is the Co-Director of the Lowenstein Human Rights Project, which allows law school and undergraduate students to conduct original research for non-profits working on international human rights issues, and works as a Tobin Research Assistant in the economics department, focusing on rural-urban migration. She also serves as the Vice President of the Peace and Dialogue Leadership Initiative, a joint program between Yale and West Point that offers student leaders the opportunity to explore US-Middle Eastern relations.
In her free time, Liana enjoys running and hiking, cooking with friends, and writing. She is originally from Houston and speaks French and Chinese.
