YC '17 studying for a BS-MS in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology and a BA in Ethics, Politics, and Economics

Kevin Hwang is a senior in Yale College studying for a BS-MS in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology and a BA in Ethics, Politics, and Economics; he is pursuing both pre-medical and pre-law studies.  He is a member of Berkeley College, and hails from Athens, Ohio, a small liberal college town farming community at the tail of the Appalachian Mountain Range.  On campus, Kevin has been involved with the President’s Public Service Fellowship, Asian American Cultural Center, and Yale Scientific Magazine (among others), and also serves with many education outreach programs as both a teacher and coordinator.  His research interests include epigenetics and cancer development, as well as foreign direct investment (FDI) liberalization in China and national development policy in Western China.  He loves movies, jogging, and learning about the most random things; he is guilty of spending hours reading Wikipedia entries for horror films he will never summon enough courage to watch.  At YYGS-Beijing, he will be teaching a range of policy-focused classes, including seminars on the ethical dimensions of biological warfare, nanoscience regulation, and tissue engineering development from a state perspective, among other topics.
