Nathan Williams, class of ‘19, has been invited to join the Phi Beta Kappa (ΦΒΚ) honors society. He will join 23 other juniors who have been chosen this spring to be a part of one of the oldest academic honors societies in the country.
Nathan is one of the first students to enroll in the Neurobiology department’s new Computational Neuroscience Track, where he has been taking classes in biology, neurobiology, mathematics and computer programming, according to Ryan Draft the Assistant Director of Undergraduate Studies, Neurobiology.
“His induction into PBK reflects his stellar academic performance in a broad range of classes across divisions,” aid Draft. “It also marks him as a student who has gone above and beyond to take more challenging courses than are required or expected by his concentration.”
Nathan also won distinction in varsity track in his first two years at Harvard, and has demonstrated an interest in education as a career. For now he is working on his research thesis in Lee Rubin’s lab, which focuses on the intersection between stem cell biology and neuroscience.
