Will is from the coastal town of Cape Elizabeth, Maine. He attended Bowdoin College where he graduated with honors in neuroscience. He now works in ophthalmology research at Boston Children’s Hospital where he studies many different forms of pediatric blindness and has co-authored multiple manuscripts. After his hard work at Bowdoin (not to mention the MCAT), Will chose to enroll in Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons.
While in college, Will served as a tutor and teaching assistant for topics ranging from introductory chemistry to molecular neuroscience and everything in between. Will stresses the importance of scientific intuition in his teaching. He encourages students to strengthen core quantitative skills in order to tackle more advanced topics. He is excited to share his passion for science with students of all levels. Will also helps to guide applicants through the arduous process of applying to medical school -- he enjoys simplifying the process by offering strategic insights and imposing organization on a very overwhelming process.
In addition to his love for science, Will is a well-versed musician and outdoorsman -- performing professionally for orchestras, playing synth for a rock band, and climbing in Acadia.
