Doug grew up on Long Island, New York. He moved north for college - and ended up staying up here. After college, he worked for the biotech startup, BlueSky Bioservices. While working there, he completed a part-time Professional Master's degree at Northeastern University. To complete his degree, he performed a six month co-op at EMD Serono, in Billerica. Since coming to WPI after that, he's been in the Srinivasan lab, working to understand how the nervous system senses social cues and encodes the relevant responses.
