Greetings, class of 2023, and welcome to Harvard! I’m originally from New Jersey, but I moved to the Cambridge area after graduating from Amherst College where I majored in mathematics and political science. I’m a PhD student at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, or HGSE (pronounced “Hug-sy”), where I study policy related to testing and the culture of testing. I am a huge fan of computer games, and that includes playing them, watching them, and, if anyone will indulge me, talking about them. I’m joined in my entryway by my partner Kari-Elle and our dog Kimber. The three of us look forward to meeting you!
