Andy is the Sabeti lab’s IRB coordinator and safety/compliance officer. He graduated from Boston College in 2011 with a B.A. in English and having completed thepremedical program. Deciding to pursue different avenues in lieu of application to medical school, Andy began working at a midsized law firm in downtown Boston upon graduation. After a short year, however, he decided to return to the scientific world, and he began in the Sabeti lab during July of 2012. Andy’s interests in the lab include improving project efficiency, monitoring ethical compliance in global health, and all aspects of grants management, from application to post-award-period reporting. Andy hopes to transition from the lab to medical school in September 2014.
Outside of the lab, Andy enjoys a diverse schedule of various hobbies and curiosities. When he isn’t reading Dickens or Wilde, he’s perusing sports medicine journals or studying the human body at work. Also an avid musician, Andy enjoys playing his acoustic guitar for small audiences and writes songs in his spare time.
