President
I’m a third year PhD student, working in the Materials Science and Metallurgy department. My research focuses on developing collagen biomaterials for implantion, to aid bone and dental regeneration.

As the SBR President I represent the graduate students within college, and am constantly working with college and the SBR committee to improve graduate life at St John’s.

I’m also the webmaster for the SBR, which is exactly what you expect – looking after the SBR website. Outside of college and work, I am often kayaking on the River Cam, or the Olympic White Water Course near London.

I’m passionate about three fields that I believe mainly govern our world: business, science, and politics – and hope to work at their intersection. Before Cambridge, I earned a B.S. in Bioengineering from Clemson University in South Carolina, USA and an MSc in Global Affairs from Tsinghua University in China as a Schwarzman Scholar. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Oncology at the University of Cambridge – with research focused on lung cancer drug development. Outside of studying, I love traveling, trying new foods (swaps, anyone?), dancing, drinking coffee with friends, and playing sports, like rugby and basketball for St. John’s and American football for Cambridge University!

As environmental officer, it is my job to help everyone be more at one with mother nature. My main job is maintaining the SBR’s communal garden, but feel free to contact me about other issues which are environmental in nature.
Committee matters aside, I’m just a simple Irishman trying to make it as a physicist. Physics aside, I like sports, baking and being a good friend.
