Julia Marino is interested in 20th Century United States History, with a particular focus on healthcare and science policy, public health, and American philanthropy.
Julia majored in History modified with Religion at Dartmouth College, where she graduated summa cum laude in June of 2017. As the recipient of a Senior Fellowship and a Stamps Scholarship at Dartmouth, Julia had the opportunity to travel to eleven archives to complete research on her senior thesis. Her research examined how the crusade against polio convinced Americans that voluntary organizations like the March of Dimes Foundation could solve public health challenges without government involvement.
At Princeton, Julia is interested in examining more broadly how health philanthropies shaped the evolution of private and public responsibility in American healthcare and scientific research.
