Graham is a fourth year graduate student in computational neuroscience (he doesn’t know what it means either — something about the brain? and computers?). He finished a math major in 2015. Though he was not able to escape Chicago’s cold embrace, he managed to flee the math department. Or did he? Despite his best efforts, the UChicago math has already left its indelible mark. Slowly, ever so slowly, he regresses to a math grad student (so, it’s not brains or computers? how does that make any sense?). To combat the impending Cthulian insanity, he started singing in CMAC at the beginning of last year So far, it’s working! (he hopes)

How did you get into singing?

On a road trip from Tucson to Chicago, my friend and I realized we were terrible at singing. So we decided to take lessons. She went to Paris instead, but I started lessons a year later.

What is an interesting fun fact about you?

I once trained a monkey to control a robot with her mind.
