Welcome First Years! I’m Dean (they/them), and I am thrilled to join you for your first year at Harvard! I’m originally Israeli but grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, and graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in elementary education. In 2019, I got my Ed.M. on Appian Way (ask me about HGSE!), and now I do research at the Center for Education Policy Research on Church Street. I am passionate about dismantling the colonial patriarchy, sci-fi literature, chess, dancing, dressing in greyscale, and cute cat videos. I also dearly love New York City where I lived in my early twenties. I’m eager to learn about your passions, academic or otherwise, and will always be available with open ears and an open heart!
