Mikaela’s research will focus on understanding pre-modern medicine, illness, and science through the lenses of social and religious history. At Princeton University, she is a student fellow for the project on Gender in the Global Community.

She is also a global health scholar at the Center for Health and Wellbeing, and was named a Class of 2018 Dean’s Scholar in the Nation’s Service through the Scholars in the Nation’s Service Initiative.

She has worked for Family Violence Prevention and Services in the United States Department of Health and Human Services through SINSI, the Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program, and Boston Medical Center.


Mikaela received a Shelby Cullom Davis Center junior independent work research grant and is a two-time winner of the Program in Judaic Studies undergraduate funding award. In 2014, New York Jewish Week named Gerwin one of its “36 under 36” young Jewish leaders.

Mikaela said she eventually plans to work in public service to address domestic violence as a social determinant of health.“I have seen firsthand the power of seeking out the narratives of lives beyond my imagination,” Mikaela said.

“I will be a better public health policymaker with the weight of a long historical context holding myself and others accountable,” she added.
