One of only 32 Americans to win a Rhodes Scholarship, the Class of 2018 undergraduate will travel to the University of Oxford next October. There, he plans to pursue a Master of Science in integrated immunology and migration studies to "improve the way we track and treat infectious diseases" (Read his interview with the Harvard Crimson)

At Harvard, Alan is concentrating in both Molecular and Cellular Biology and Human Anthropology. He currently works in the lab of Higgins Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Dan Kahne, whose research focuses on the problem of antibiotic resistance, especially in Gram-negative bacteria. With this valuable immersion in immunology and his drive and undeniable promise, we are excited to see what Alan's future brings.
