Dan hails from the Boston area, an ardent Red Sox fan and even more ardent consumer of its delicious food. At Yale, he grew fascinated with the brain. Dan decided to major in Cognitive Science with a focus on the cognition of impulsivity. He recently graduated with Phi Beta Kappa distinction. His thesis work on the relationship between dopamine and BMI earned the Angier award for outstanding senior essay on a psychological topic. He also served for one year as Science & Technology Editor for the Yale Daily News, and as a research analyst at the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Genetics at the Broad Institute of Harvard & MIT. He is currently pursuing his MD/PhD degree at Harvard Medical School.
His tutoring interests focus around the new 2015 MCAT, on which he scored in the 100th percentile overall, and its associated academic subjects, including biochemistry, psychology, and research methods. Dan’s tutoring experience includes two years as a one-on-one tutor through the volunteer organization New Haven Reads.
When Dan is not reading up on the newest research about the genetics of brain disorders, you might find him seeking out a new hot restaurant, figuring out which new hot restaurant he will seek out next, or reading The New Yorker magazine.
