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

I’m very delighted to be joining Kirkland house community with my wife, Soha Bayoumi, the Resident Dean, and our daughter, Carmen. By day, I’m the Richard T. Watson associate professor of science and religion at Harvard Divinity School and affiliate associate professor at the History of Science Department, the Standing Committee on Women, Gender and Sexuality and the Committee on the Study of Religion. I also direct of the Science, Religion and Culture program. I grew up in Cairo, Egypt and received my MD at Cairo University and then received my PhD in history of science at the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes in Paris, France. By night (during the baseball season), I’m watching the Red Sox, reading sabermetrics and scouting reports. And on any given Sunday, it’s Patriots time! I’m a diehard Star Wars fan and there is always a new Sci Fi novel open on my kindle. Looking forward to meeting and knowing all of you.

Tutor In: Pre-Career, Art

Hi, Kirkland! My husband Rory Lindsay and I are excited to be returning for our fourth year as I-entryway tutors with our golden retriever, Arista. I am the Pre-Career coordinator which means I lead a team of great tutors who are here to help you think about internships and the transition into full-time jobs after college.  I am also an Art tutor focused on art-making-- look for me in the dining hall for bi-weekly Art Table.  In my life outside Kirkland, I am a Principal at ghSMART, a leadership advisory firm that works with CEOs and investors on issues at the intersection of strategy and human capital. Prior to ghSMART, I was an Associate Partner at McKinsey & Company where I worked primarily with healthcare companies. I graduated from Harvard (Chemistry, 2006) and from Harvard Business School (MBA, 2012) where I also completed a one-year fellowship studying disruptive innovation. I look forward to seeing you all this year!... Read more about Dina Wang
