Darin

I am a recent Chemistry Ph.D. graduate with a 7 month break before starting in my next role in management consulting. As the most enjoyable experiences of my career to date have been in teaching and mentoring, I am spending the intervening period tutoring!

I received my Ph.D. in Chemistry from MIT, where I was a Presidential Fellow and a Dept. of Defense Graduate Fellow, and my B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Tufts University, Summa Cum Laude with Highest Thesis Honors. Over the course of my scientific research career I have produced 14 research publications, given 12 talks at international conferences, including the largest annual Physics, Chemistry, Materials, and Chemical Engineering conferences in the world, and have received 8 awards, totaling over $300k, specifically in recognition of my research accomplishments.

As both an undergraduate and graduate student I have also taught, tutored, and mentored students. At MIT, I won a Graduate Teaching Award for thrice-weekly recitations of Intro Chemistry and Physical Chemistry at MIT; students consistently outperformed their peers in 5 other sections (higher average exam grades on all 4 exams and 9/12 pop quizzes, by an average margin of 5 grade points). As a graduate student, I have mentored over a dozen undergraduate students individually in their research, academics, career planning, and time/workflow management.

Alongside my scientific career I have pursued an interest in business, leading to my pending employment as a Management Consultant. I took a full year of Management Science coursework at MIT's Sloan School of Management, including Microeconomics, Marketing, and Competitive Strategy. I applied that education to consulting engagement both freelance and through MIT. I have worked with a $16b Chinese state-owned enterprise on Sales force organization design, a $27b glass manufacturer on market entry into OLED lighting market, and a healthcare software startup on business model development. In those engagements I worked alongside graduate students from MIT and other international schools, and on several occasions presented findings to the senior management of the client firm.

In addition to being a Native English speaker, I have studied Japanese for 7 years, including 3 years of college-level coursework and a 6 month stint working in Sales for a $17b semiconductor manufacturer in Japan.

No matter what your background and challenges are as a student, I look forward to working together with you!
