Vincent FitzPatrick
Graduate Student

I grew up in New Jersey and earned a bachelor's degree at Northwestern University in Chicago. I majored in Biological Sciences with a concentration in Evolutionary and Developmental Biology (EvoDevo), and took a particular interest in evolutionary processes, computer modelling and systems biology.

In Chicago, I worked at the Field Museum of Natural History, studying the life history traits and reproductive strategies of a unique group of murine rodents endemic to the Philippines. At Northwestern, I investigated the interaction between two copper transport proteins in the yeast copper transport pathway.

My interests include craft beer, anthropology, science fiction and improv comedy. I have a healthy obsession with Charles Darwin. I am trying to learn how to cook, and I am excited to explore NYC.
