Hi Kirkland! James and I are thrilled to return to Kirkland House this year. I’m in my fourth year as an MD/PhD student at Harvard, and am pursuing my graduate work in the History of Science department. Before starting medical school, I graduated from Harvard College and spent one year working as a reporter in Boston. I’m originally from Davidson, North Carolina and hail from a family of classical musicians. James and I are always happy to chat about graduate school, professional school, and the great outdoors (we love hiking/camping). We look forward to meeting you all! Read more about Alyssa Botelho

Hi Kirkland House! Looking forward to joining the Kirkland community this year as the F-entryway tutor! I’m originally from Minnesota, and graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College where I majored in Biology and Scandinavian Studies. I’m starting my fourth year as an MD/PhD student at Harvard, and pursuing my PhD in Immunology. Currently, I spend a lot of my time in lab at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute studying mechanisms of resistance to immune checkpoint blockade and working to identify potential new targets for immunotherapy. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, being outdoors, and traveling. I’m excited to play IM sports, hang out in the D-hall, and have lots of conversations over coffee or tea!

Dearest Kirkland, it is good to be back.  I walked these hallowed grounds as Harvard undergrad with the class of 2010. I concentrated in Human Evolutionary Biology, was a four year member of the Harvard Men's Volleyball team, and almost successfully completed the chickwich challenge my sophomore year.  I attended UCLA for medical school and I returned to Boston as a resident in the Harvard Combined Dermatology Residency Program. I am excited to be serving as one of your a Pre-med and fellowships tutors. I am a big fan of sports, hiking, venturing into Boston and of course eating. Looking forward to meeting you!
