Fun fact: I really love collaborative storytelling games. Yes, like D&D.

Liam graduated in 2019 with a dual A.B. in Physics and Literary Arts. He received Honors in Creative Writing for his thesis project, Tinnitus and Other Apologies, a study of memory and loss through poetry and speculative fiction. Liam's motivation to balance art and science informed all of his work at Brown, where he wrote poetry for the Organism for Poetic Research, edited pieces for the Catalyst Journal, and took on research projects in ocean modelling and special relativity. In Autumn 2021, he began his master's in sustainability science at the Stockholm Resilience Centre, where he researches the potential for imagined futures to create opportunities for change.
