    Jonathan Felix

    Jonathan Felix, MS Class of 2022

    Hi all! I’m a second year MS student concentrating in Infectious Diseases, and currently working on my master’s thesis. As a peer tutor, I would like to help you see the power of the word ‘applied’ in applied life sciences. My background experience from working in biotechnology for 3 years before attending KGI has allowed me to serve as a translator of difficult concepts in science heavy courses here at KGI. If you want a plain-speak explanation of concepts from courses like ALS 300, ALS 320, or other highly technical courses here at KGI, please do not hesitate to book me!
