Comus honorably served in the United States Navy prior to starting his civilian career as a researcher. Comus received a full-tuition scholarship from the Posse Foundation to attend Vassar College, where he graduated in May of 2019 with a BA in Biology, and subsequently joined the Goessling lab in June 2019. At Vassar, Comus investigated the effects of pesticides on the healthspan, lifespan, and functioning of the nematode C. elegans, under the supervision of Dr. Kathleen Susman. At present, Comus works alongside Sahar characterizing pathways implicated in pancreatic cancer, as well as helping with the care and husbandry of zebrafish. Outside of the lab, Comus enjoys exercising, nutrition, sleep, consuming science fiction novels and films, and being in nature.
