Fun Facts
  • Jack isn’t the biggest fan of heights, the walkways across the atrium in the lab make him slightly nauseous.
  • Jack has two dogs back in the UK and would really like one to help him get through grad school but spends too much time in the lab.
  • Jack misses the perpetual rain and overcast weather native to England, the New Jersey weather is undoubtedly the worst thing about Princeton.
