Department Advising

Email: mauffant [at]

Hello everyone! My name is Marino and I am thrilled to join Dunster as a History and International Resident Tutor. I am originally from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, and was a History concentrator at Harvard – as well as a proud Dunster resident! As an undergrad, I spent quite a bit of time learning languages such as Russian, Arabic and Persian, and spending summers in Moscow, Seoul and Istanbul. Upon graduation, I worked for the Dominican government, and went on for my Master’s in Public Administration in France’s Ecole Nationale d’Administration. I then worked in strategy consulting in Paris for a couple of years – doing all kinds of sectors such as energy, public services, private equity, automotive and financial services. After this corporate detour, I am thrilled to come back to Harvard and Dunster for my PhD in History! I look forward to meeting you all, and to all the great conversations to come!

Hi Dunster! I am a Resident Tutor for BGLTQ and Race Relations. I am originally from Detroit, MI, and went to Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA for undergrad. There I studied psychology before going to law school at UCLA. Here at Harvard, I am a Ph.D. student in African American Studies. I study academic admissions and institutional decision making, so I guarantee that we have something to talk about! When I’m not working, I’m talking about politics, television, or just exploring the Boston area. I look forward to a great and productive school year, with some fun and important conversations along the way.

Email: gose [at]

My name is Leah and I’m a third-year doctoral student is sociology at Harvard. I’m a resident tutor at Mather House and a sociology concentration adviser for Mather and Dunster Houses. An Atlanta native, I live for the (semi)warm summers here in Cambridge and I love exploring the city. I attended Washington and Lee University in Virginia where I received a BA in Sociology and German Language. After college, I worked in DC doing business development at a non-profit that employed wounded veterans and people with disabilities. My passion for understanding poverty and social policy led me here, where a good chunk of my research focuses on how people engage with social services and how local/state/federal policies affect their lives. My current work is a networks study of organizations working to help people who are hungry and dealing with food insecurity in American cities. I have a habit of picking up new hobbies and I’ll try anything once! I love vanilla ice cream, listening to music, fighting prejudice, and anything to do with autumn.
