the prism light is the written portfolio of science journalist and budding epidemiologist Isabella Gomes.

At 24, Isabella is a Canada-bred, SoCal-stirred, Jersey-weathered former New Yorker. She carries a bachelor's degree in infectious diseases and ecology from Princeton University and a master's degree in investigative health and human rights journalism from Columbia Journalism School. Most recently, she spent a year, reporting from the sunny beaches of Florida as a writing fellow for the Miami New Times (click here to read her stories) and working as a freelancer based in the tristate area. Now living in Baltimore, she pursues a Master's in Public Health in epidemiology at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. It's only been two months, but she is a big fan of Charm City. 

As always, if she's not banging her head against a wall of writer's block or complaining about the lack of A/C in her apartment, Isabella can be found at salsa/bachata clubs trying not to step on other people's feet. 


All photos on this site were taken by Isabella Gomes during her travels and related escapades as part of ┬ęthe prism light tour, unless indicated otherwise.
