I am gay and I am an organic chemistry graduate student.
I study at Texas A&M University, researching inhibitors of protein-protein interactions in cancers. I grew up in Iowa and have been out of the closet since I was 16. I’ve been lucky to have been out for so long and have a community of support from my STEM colleagues. When I’m not in lab (haha, good joke), I like to do photography, play piano, study foreign policy, program things, and cook.
