Brief Biographical Sketch:

My name is Lucius. I grew up in Newton, Massachusetts, where I nursed a love for biology and the TV show Psych. For high school, I attended boarding school in Andover, MA, where I picked up an interest and now a competing love for the literature, philosophy, and other humanistic disciplines. I aim to attend medical school after graduation, possibly after a stint in graduate school, and my lifelong dream is to contribute to our understanding of the brain by integrating a biochemical and philosophical perspective.
