Alumni Spotlight: Matthew Kunicki

Matthew Kunicki, minor in Philosophy, Class of ’14

Matthew earned his BS in Biochemistry with minors in Philosophy and English. He continued into a career in translational and biopharmaceutical research, beginning at Stanford University and later with Pfizer. His coursework in philosophy of mind, science, psychology, and epistemology was an inspiration that added depth to his understanding of natural philosophy, both in concept and practice. He lends much thanks to the many mentors, across a variety of fields, for helping him to retain an innovative perspective with his scientific work and personal life. Currently, he is reading McLuhan’s (1959), The Guttenberg Galaxy, and is reminiscing on how poignant these undergraduate studies were—along with his Medical Intelligence and Innovation internship—for his work in data analytics, mass cytometry, and parenting.
