Hannah S. Carlile is pursuing an M.Ed. in International Education Policy and Management, but loves everything interdisciplinary because she appreciates problem solving from systems thinking. As such, she is completing graduate certificates in both Global Health and Caribbean and Latin American Studies. Hannah is a Foreign Language and Areas Studies (FLAS) Fellow, which has given her deeper insight into Caribbean cultures and languages, especially Haitian Creole. She was also a Fellow with Columbia University's Center for Public Research and Leadership, serving as a student education research consultant for a semester on Bill and Melinda Gates new Networks for School Improvement initiative.
