Curriculum Vitae (PDF)

Nicholas recevied his B.S. in Chemistry and Biochemistry & Molecular Biology from the University of Minnesota - Duluth in 2009. There he worked under the guidance of Professor Viktor Nemykin on synthesizing and characterizing novel porphyrins and phthalocyanines. In 2016, he received his Ph.D. in Medicinal Chemistry from the University of Minnesota, where he worked with Professor Daniel Harki on a variety of projects in the chemical biology space including designing DNA-based technologies to modulate the NF-κB transcription factor. After graduating, he began his postdoctoral studies with Professor Angela Koehler at MIT where he focused on discovering and developing small molecule chemical probes to historically challenging targets, namely transcription factors, that have garnered interest as potential therapeutic targets involved in oncology and in regulating immunity including the Myc, Max, ARv-7, and Foxp3 transcription factors.
