Understanding cellular responses induced by chronic implantation of electrodes using a novel human neural differentiation platform

Tommy comes from a long line of scientists and educators, with professors and teachers throughout the family tree. He grew up in Kentucky and Ohio, and went to Cornell University thinking that he would be a lawyer. He graduated as a double major in Chemistry and Science and Technology Studies (STS), with an appreciation for the history and philosophy of science as well as science itself. In the future, he hopes to both conduct scientific research and raise awareness of science as a historical and social endeavor.
