Harvard U, 2007 — AB cum laude in Chemistry
Curently an Associate with The Boston Consulting Group in
Boston; joining Bain Capital Private Equity in the fall.
During college I did a signigicant amount of work in molecular biology studying transcriptional regulation in non-Hodgkins lymphoma
and breast cancer. I have been an author on 4 papers based on my work. Links to the PubMed summaries are below. The second one
listed (on p63/p73) was my main research interest. I also was acknowledged on a Genes/Dev paper from that lab.
