Dylan graduated with a Master of Public Health from the Boston University School of Public Health receiving Delta Omega honors while concentrating in Community Assessment, Program Design, Implementation, and Evaluation with a sub-concentration in Mental Health and Substance Use in 2023. Prior to graduate school, he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience from Baylor University in 2021. As a master’s student, he worked as a Graduate Research Assistant in the Boston University Translational Research Program where he aided in various studies and programs with topics ranging from fear acquisition to the intersections between mental health, substance use, and public health. As an undergraduate, Dylan worked as a Research Intern and later as an Undergraduate Research Assistant at the Laureate Institute for Brain Research where he researched the anxiolytic effects of Floatation-REST, and helped develop and publish the Apnea-induced Anxiety Model, a novel neurobiological model that attempts to explain the etiology of anxiety disorders. His research interests revolve around understanding and addressing social determinants of mental health to prevent serious mental illness, improve mental health outcomes, and increase access to mental health care. After the DCRP, Dylan plans to pursue a PhD in the public health field.
