John Mathew studied Evolutionary Biology at Old Dominion University and Harvard University, and recently received his Ph.D. In 1995 he received a BBC prize for his radio play Grave Affairs, which the BBC subsequently produced and broadcast. He later adapted the play for the stage, and has toured it throughout New England with South Asian American Theatre (SAATh), a group for which he has served as co-founder and artistic director. Dr. Mathew plans to pursue Ph.D. Number Two back at Harvard, this time in the History of Science.
