Tutor in: Engineering, Boat Club, Fellowships

Hey KHaus! I'm excited to return to Kirkland this year along with my wife, Kori. Originally from Chicago, I graduated from Kirkland in 2014, joint concentrating in {Biomedical Engineering} and {Chemistry & Physics}. At Harvard I had the privilege of performing with the Glee Club, the Krokodiloes, and the Bach Society Orchestra. After graduating, I spent a year in Munich on a Fulbright fellowship working at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics. I'm currently a PhD student in Electrical Engineering at MIT, where I'm supported by a NASA Graduate Fellowship and work with Lincoln Laboratory in Lexington. Accordingly, I tutor in Engineering, Fellowships, and Music. My research entails shooting lasers at diamonds in order to build quantum computers - or at least, that's what I tell our funding agencies. Outside work, I love spending time outdoors, volunteering with the Museum of Science, and singing. Come say hello at STEM office hours, chat me up about ways to fund your dream service/study trip, or come de-stress at our dog Dusty's Pawfice Hours!

Hi K-House! I'm excited to serve as your resident tutor of I-entryway along with my friend Stefan. I'm a Computer Science PhD candidate in the Data Systems Lab (DASlab) @ Harvard SEAS (on leave). This year I am spending my time working on a new venture. I first came through Kirkland House with Class of 2015, concentrating in Computer Science. Before the PhD, I was incredibly lucky to have had a broad set of opportunities, including working as a data analytics staffer for a presidential campaign, growing quantitative hedge funds, and engaging with the venture & startup community. I'm happy to chat about STEM research & academia, quantitative finance, tech startups and venture capital, political campaigns, and your creative pursuits in general. I hope to meet all of you throughout this year!... Read more about Wilson Qin

Hi Kirkland! My name is Channing (she/her/hers) and I'm a PhD candidate in Organizational Behavior, a joint program between Harvard Business School and the Department of Sociology. My research focuses on inequality--particularly gender and race--within organizations and labor markets. I'm an alum of the College and previously worked in the tech and ed tech industries. At Kirkland, I advise on Fellowships and Public Service. I'm also happy to chat current events, bingeworthy shows, yummy eats, good reads, and podcasts.
