George is in his 4th year of medical school at University of Connecticut with plans to pursue cardiothoracic anesthesiology during residency. He graduated top 1% of his class at Northeastern university where he studied Behavioral Neuroscience. George has won several academic and research grants that funded both personal projects as well as projects at Massachusetts General hospital and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. He has studied the brains understanding of the 3D environment and how it is disrupted by Alzheimer's Disease. He also studied a phenomenon known as multisensory decision making - how the brain combines auditory and visual information to help us make decisions. Lastly, he designed head implants to help us study the electrical activity of neurons in freely moving, awake-behaving mice. Much of his work required use of the scientific method, 3D printing, academic presentations, and surgical technique. During his free time, he loves to cook across all cuisines including Egyptian, Korean, Japanese, and Italian. As George moves forward in his career within medicine, he hopes to become an excellent educator and to pass the baton to curious learners.
