Name: Joseph Galasso

Hometown: Tucson, AZ Major: Biology

Notable UD Memories/Achievements: Receiving the Cardinal Spellman Award; representing UD as a 2021 Goldwater Scholar and a 2022 Marshall  Scholarship Finalist.

Future Plans: Pursuing a Ph.D. in bioinformatics at  the University of California, Los Angeles.

Joseph Galasso, BS ’22, initially considered other science majors at UD but ultimately decided on biology; the program allowed him to pursue his interests beyond the classroom. His favorite classes were molecular biology with Associate Professor of Biology William Cody, Ph.D., and Western Civilization II with Associate Professor of History Charles Sullivan, Ph.D. He explained, “The latter helped me build a more cohesive picture of how scientific, political, economic and cultural forces have shaped the world we live in today.” He emphasized, “I would encourage students to explore career pathways that will ultimately move the world forward.”
