Yajur has a keen interest in global health challenges, solutions, and outcomes. He recently graduated from Duke University, where he studied Biology and Global Health. He has experience in research, communications, and advocacy work and is excited to bring his skillset to the GHS community.
During college, Yajur was a student researcher for Project Recognize, where he developed and tested new methods of sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity (SSOGI) data collection to address the need for better data informing LGBT health outcomes. He also researched the barriers and facilitators to hearing healthcare at the Duke Margolis Center for Health Policy. Most recently, Yajur served as a Branding Strategist for Tanzania Young Eco Protection, where he revamped the organization’s branding for Maji Tap, their novel foot pedal-powered handwashing stations.
In his free time, Yajur loves singing, traveling, playing and watching sports, spending time with friends and family, and volunteering as a Crisis Counselor for the Trevor Project.
