Kira Brenner
Hi there! I’m Kira Brenner, a Bay Area native who graduated from Harvard College in 2018 with a degree in neurobiology, on the mind brain behavior track. After graduating, I spent a year as a teaching fellow in Beijing, China. I’m back in Cambridge now, and recently started working at the Broad Institute doing research on risk genes for schizophrenia. Last year, I adopted a wonderful senior cat I named Iroh, after the great Uncle Iroh from Avatar the Last Airbender. My goal is for Iroh to become friends with Bruno, a proctor's corgi over in Ivy Yard. This will be my second year proctoring—I greatly missed meeting with students in-person last year, so I am extra excited to meet the Class of 2025 and help you navigate your first year at Harvard!
