Eddie grew up in New York where he attended SUNY New Paltz, majoring in Chemistry. There, his research was primarily focused in organic chemistry, while a summer research program at Johns Hopkins University opened him up to chemical biology. He began his PhD in Chemical Biology at Yale in 2018, where his combined interest in these research areas led him to join the Spiegel lab. Here, his work is primarily focused on the development of therapeutically relevant bifunctional molecules. Outside of lab, Eddie enjoys hiking, camping, and weightlifting.
