Brief Bio
Beau grew up just outside of Phoenix, Arizona as the second-youngest of five children. He majored in ethnomusicology (the hushed-up lovechild of anthropology and musicology) at Brigham Young University. He and his wife, Lori, spent a third of their first year as newlyweds in a Tibetan refugee community in South India, where she studied traditional medicine and farming practices and he played the Tibetan lute, taught drums, and sang badly at birthday parties. Beau went to medical school at the Cleveland Clinic College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University, which is notable both for being a 5-year program focused on research and for having a really, really long acronym. Lori was a regular vendor of awesome handmade art and jewelry at the farmers markets and nature centers in and around Cleveland. The apparent total of X chromosomes in the household stands at 11. Beau is excited to join the Harrison Society, with plans to complete a fellowship in hematology-oncology. His scientific interests focus on data science and machine learning approaches to diagnosis and prognostication for blood cancers, with further interests in healthcare disparities. Outside of work, Beau loves arguing with his children.
