Nina Finley is an American disease ecologist investigating ecological solutions to human health problems. After graduating from Whitman College in 2017 with a BA in biology-environmental studies, she spent two years researching the unseen directors of our planet — microbes — in Brazil, Madagascar, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Canadian Arctic. She writes grants for the rainforest non-profit Health in Harmony and articles for the environmental news site Mongabay. Nina’s scientific sketch-notes have been commissioned by Médecins Sans Frontières, Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, and MSD Animal Health. Currently based in London, Nina is a Marshall Scholar pursuing an MSc in One Health, a field that integrates veterinary medicine with public health, at the Royal Veterinary College and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. For her dissertation, she is building a software tool to help policy-makers in Africa predict the effect of dam construction on schistosomiasis, a waterborne parasitic disease.
