He worked in Prof. Gloster Aaron’s neuroscience lab, studying epilepsy in mice, and was a teaching assistant in physics and biology for the past two years. He plays jazz and classical piano, enjoys bass and fly fishing, and served as vice president for the Wesleyan chapter of the American Medical Student Association. He will be attending Tufts University School of Medicine this fall. UPFRONT
