Resident Tutor

Tutor In: Writing, Public Health

Hi Kirkland! I'm Christine and my husband Gil and I are excited to be a part of Kirkland this year. I graduated from Harvard College in 2010, concentrating in History and Science. I was also a four year member of the Harvard-Radcliffe women's crew and can't wait to support all of our in-house athletes. Although I resided in Quincy house during undergrad, I hope you don't hold this against me. :) Since then I have been pursuing research related to concussions in one capacity or another, including, most recently, in my current role as a PhD candidate in Health Policy here at Harvard. I look forward to serving you as a writing tutor and as a resource for those of you interested in pursuing non-MD health-related careers. I also love to chat sports, outdoors, and Boston-area excursions for those of you looking to get out of Harvard Square for a bit. I can't wait to meet you all! Read more about Christine Baugh

Tutor In: Pre-Med, Writing

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!

Poet-in-Residence
I-27

I'm very happy to continue this year as Kirkland's Poet-in-Residence. I graduated from Harvard College in 2005, after which I attended Cambridge (MPhil), the Iowa Writers Workshop (MFA), and Yale (PhD). I am now a junior fellow in the Harvard Society of Fellows, where I am writing about poetry and philosophy. I have published six books and chapbooks of poetry, as well as translations from French, German, and Russian. Here in Kirkland I organize poetry readings and events, and I plan to bring writers to the House for dinners and conversations. I also host a writing table, where we read texts of our own or by writers we enjoy. Everyone is welcome! Read more about Kevin Holden

Resident Tutor

Tutor In: Music, Wellness, Writing

Hi, Kirkland! My wife Dina Wang and I are excited to return to Kirkland for a fourth year as I-entryway tutors. I'm currently a PhD student in Tibetan and South Asian religions, and I'm the Senior Tutor, the religious studies tutor, a music tutor, and a writing tutor. I'm also on the wellness team and the international experience team. Before coming to Kirkland, I was a proctor at the Center for the Study of World Religions at Harvard Divinity School, and I also spent a year living in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal. Throughout my undergrad (religious studies, philosophy) and master's (Tibetan and South Asian religions) at the University of Toronto, I played in indie rock bands and produced a few records along the way. I look forward to seeing you all this year! Read more about Rory Lindsay
