Sunil Tohan is quick to talk about his role models and mentors, including his academic advisor, Sarah Taylor; Alex Nading, a senior fellow for International and Public Affairs; and Professor Paul Armstrong, his first English literature professor.
“Brown has a unique campus culture and climate that I've found to be so supportive and positive,” he says.
In Dr. David Egilman’s lab, Sunil is researching public health crises created by large corporations that impact communities of color, low-income communities and other marginalized groups.
This experience, and Dr. Egilman’s guidance, have opened Sunil’s eyes to how public health coursework could translate to the real world. It’s these faculty advisors and mentors who have made Sunil’s time at Brown so meaningful.
