Hello everyone!! My name is Devon and I'm thrilled to start my second year as a Cabot resident tutor with my partner, Ari. Before coming to Harvard, I attended Penn State University where I majored in Chemistry and competed on the Division-I wrestling team. I'm currently a 5th year PhD student in Chemistry and Chemical Biology in the Balskus Lab where I'm studying the ways that soil microbes synthesize antibiotic and chemotherapeutic compounds. Outside of the lab, I enjoy coaching wrestling, competing in Jiu Jitsu, playing chess, and hanging out with our cat, Chicken, and our dog, Waffles. I look forward to getting to know you all! Please feel free to stop by if you want to chat or hang out with Chicken and Waffles!
