Joe grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia. He is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania where he studied Psychology (Honors Distinction, Phi Beta Kappa, and summa cum laude).
Joe has several years of teaching and tutoring experience. At Penn Joe founded and directed the Silverman Fellows Program, a program which aims to promote critical reading, writing, and speaking skills in West Philadelphia high-school classrooms. The Program works with high school students to explore issues pertaining to bioethics while offering SAT preparation. Additionally, he has tutored students of all ages during the academic year and summer months.
Joe spends a lot of time in data analytics especially publicly available datasets dealing with health expenditure and epidemiology. He independently published the first population-based study to show intestinal infection is associated with the onset of an anxiety disorder. At Cambridge Coaching, Joe helps students with their applications, expository writing, standardized tests and other academic subjects.
When he isn't trying to convince people that infection and anxiety are related, he enjoys running, hiking, and finding new neighborhoods to explore. He will be pursuing a PhD at Harvard University in Population Health Sciences in the fall.
