Raised in Rockland, New York, Brad left to study chemistry at Haverford College. There he worked with Joshua Schrier on electronic structure theory to predict whether membranes would be suitable for gas separations. Additionally, he performed research with Frances Rose Blase to synthesize these membranes for gas separations. He got his BS in chemistry in 2017. Currently, Brad is pursuing research on vaccines, specifically looking at how cells communicate to build up protections against disease.
His scientific hero is Louise K. Charkoudian.
