Adedoyin Eisape

Research Assistant

Adedoyin Eisape explores issues of equity, resilience, and autonomy through community engagement and participatory methods. Work with various non-profits and state entities supporting education, housing, and health initiatives in New Jersey, Philadelphia, Boston, and Baltimore, augmented her knowledge of emerging injustices, barriers, and gaps in service. With a passion for serving diverse communities, her background has made her exceptionally aware of the role power and positionality play in perpetuating violence and trauma that contributes to the oppression and subjugation in marginalized communities. 

Adedoyin holds a Master of Public Health from the Harvard T.H. School of Public Health, Department of Global Health and Population, and a B.S. in Biology from Haverford College. She has worked as an assistant researcher and supported establishing equity best practices with an eye toward implementation. Her research approach is informed by a decolonial biosocial approach to establish a holistic perspective of the distribution and determinants of health, wellness, and disease in diverse populations. Her studies in biology, education, health and social behavior, design, economics, human rights, community research methods, and political advocacy have expanded her social justice toolkit for equity-based change. Her academic and professional focus exemplifies interdisciplinary and people-centered insights to integrate lived experience and academic analysis towards transformative change.
