PhD student, Biology
School of Arts & Sciences

Christian graduated from Lehigh University in May 2020 with a B.S. in Behavioral Neuroscience and a B.A. in Molecular Biology. During his time in undergrad, he gathered research experience spanning three years, and has worked in three separate labs, each using a different model organism (bacteriophages, mice, and Drosophila) to investigate research questions dealing with bacteriophages, anxiety/memory, and neurodegeneration. 

He then pursued a Master’s of Engineering in Technical Entrepreneurship (also at Lehigh) and graduated in May 2021. 

Christian is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Biology in the School of Arts and Sciences and is excited for all the skills and memories he’ll make over the next several years!
