Marlee joined the Center for Bioethics and Humanities in September of 2022 as a Professional Research Assistant. She will be assisting on a research project looking at the clinical and ethical implications of artificial intelligence in healthcare. Previously, she has worked on public health policy in Washington D.C. and more recently as a Researcher Coordinator for the Center for Health, Work, and Environment at CU-Anschutz looking at the public health implications of climate change on vulnerable populations around Colorado.

She hopes to attend medical school one day and to combine her passion for health equity and ethics research with her medical training to become a primary care physician. Outside of work she enjoys mountain biking, Ultimate Frisbee, trail running and re-watching The Office. 

She has a Bachelor’s of Arts from Colorado College and a certificate in Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Studies from CU-Boulder.
