Hi Winthrop! I'm so excited to be a resident tutor in the house. I was born in Vancouver, Canada to Ethiopian parents. My family moved around a lot when I was growing up, so I consider both Richmond, VA and Durham, NC to be home. I graduated from Duke University in 2017, where I majored in evolutionary anthropology and minored in political science.

After college, I worked for two years at a urology clinical research lab at the Durham VA Hospital. Here at Harvard, I am currently in the joint MD/MBA program. My interests include ophthalmology, disability health care, and global health. I am also involved in disability advocacy with the Disabilities in Medicine and Dentistry Working Group.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, trying new recipes, and developing my videography skills. I am always available to chat about this or anything else! I am looking forward to getting to know you.
