Born in Boston but raised in Madison, WI (and a die-hard Badger fan), I moved back east to attend college at Brown University where I graduated with a degree in Chemistry in 2010.  My partner Katherine and I then moved here to Boston where I am in the midst of an MD-PhD at HMS/MIT.  For my PhD (in Biology at MIT), I am studying cancer biology, trying to understand why many chemotherapy drugs don’t work very well and how we can make them more effective.  In Winthrop, I will serve as a pre-medical tutor and am excited to work (and play) with all of you!  I enjoy talking about just about anything to do with the outdoors and am an avid hiker, backpacker, skier, sailor etc.  On Saturdays and Sundays you can often find me watching football (go Badgers, Colts and Packers) or basketball.  Come talk to me about travel, medicine, music, health care policy, or anything in the humanities/sciences.  I am curious and love learning from all of you!  Find me in the dining hall or around and come say hi.
