Connor is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Molecular Biology at Princeton University. He graduated with a BA from Williams College where he majored in biology and psychology and concentrated in neuroscience. Through basic, translational, and clinical perspectives, he has conducted research at a plethora of institutions spanning topics in cancer, neuroscience, development, stem cells, biochemistry, and genetics. Before he arrived at Princeton, he spent two years at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute where he worked for both an academic lab and the Center for DNA Damage and Repair, an integrative research center focused on translational and clinical aspects of drug response. At Princeton, he is a member of the Boulanger Lab, where he studies neuroimmunology, specifically the role of the immune system in neural circuits and neural pathologies. He is an avid baseball fan and enjoys spending time with his dog, Bailey.
Case Competition Chair
Ivy is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Princeton University. She received her B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

She is also a football fan and enjoys “arguing” who is the best football player in the world.
Case Competition Chair
Alex is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Molecular Biology at Princeton University. He graduated from Arizona State University with a B.S. in Microbiology as well as a B.S. in computational mathematics. At Princeton, he is using both of these degrees to investigate macromolecule dynamics in a developing organism using mass spectrometry analysis and multi-omics computational pipelines. When he isn't in lab, you can find Alex mountain biking or watching niche movies.
