Hi Adams!  I live in D-11 with Rekha (my wife) and Beam (my dog).  I’m a graduate student in Professor Katia Bertoldi’s lab in the Engineering School where I study material nonlinearities.  I grew up in Sudbury, Massachusetts before coming to Harvard/Adams House.  Since graduating in 2013, I've been a management consultant, a software engineer, and now a graduate student/tutor.  You can find me in the dining hall or at the weekly Adams House yoga classes.

Hi!  I’m Christopher.  In addition to serving as the H-Entryway resident tutor, I’m Naima’s long-term, awesome, guaranteed-to-win-you-over, amazing boyfriend.  When I’m not spending time with Naima, I’m a full-time process engineer/project manager for an international conglomerate that focuses on the design and fabrication of pharmaceutical grade filtration systems and filters.  Before starting my current role, I was a production engineer manufacturing pharmaceuticals and before that I was an analytical chemist!  Time flies when you're having fun!  When I was in college I spent my time in between my chemistry laboratory, cycling on my road bike, and going to football games!  ...
