Kevin O'Connor

School of Medicine

Dr. Kevin C. O’Connor is an Associate Professor of Neurology at Yale University. He earned a BS in Chemistry from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and his Ph.D. in Biochemistry at Tufts Medical School. He took his post-doctoral training in Immunology at Harvard where he also spent several years as an Assistant Professor. His investigative interests are in human translational neuroimmunology, with specific focus on defining the mechanisms by which B-cells affect tissue damage in autoimmunity. To this end, his group is engaged in understanding how B-cell subsets initiate and sustain autoimmunity. His team’s accomplishments include refining the role of Epstein-Barr virus in the multiple sclerosis (MS) brain and further defining the role of autoantibodies in children and adults with MS. They recently identified a network of B-cells that populate the MS central nervous system by trafficking through the cervical lymph nodes. Their current efforts include defining the immunopathology of myasthenia gravis (MG). His group demonstrated that MG antigen-specific T-cells belong to the pro-inflammatory Th17 subset and determined that MG patients harbor defects in B-cell tolerance. Their current focus is on describing the mechanisms of autoantibody production in MG, using high-throughput sequencing, toward the aim of improving therapeutic approaches.

Ayesha Ramachandran

Comparative Literature

Ayesha Ramachandran is Associate Professor of Comparative Literature and an affiliate of the Programs in Renaissance Studies and the History of Science and Medicine. She received her BA from Smith College and her PhD from Yale in Renaissance Studies, and is a former Junior Fellow of the Harvard Society of Fellows. A literary and cultural historian of early modern Europe, she pursues interdisciplinary research on literature, philosophy, cartography, visual culture and the history of science, focusing on the long histories of globalization and modernity. Her first prizewinning book, The Worldmakers (University of Chicago Press, 2015) provides a cultural and intellectual history of “the world,” showing how it emerged as a cultural keyword in early modernity. She has written on major authors of the European Renaissance (Petrarch, Montaigne, Tasso, Spenser, Milton), on postcolonial drama, and on the histories of religious fundamentalism and cosmopolitanism. She is a co-editor of Spenser Studies and has co-edited several special issues of scholarly journals on topics ranging from humanism and posthumanism, macrocosmic Shakespeare, Renaissance aesthetics and history, and imagining global early modernity. Her current projects range from new research on early modern South Asia to comparative philology, cartography and lyric studies. She is currently working on two very different book projects – one on lyric poetry, tentatively entitled, Lyric Thinking: Towards a Global Poetics, and a hybrid memoir-cum-cultural history of officers and their families in the Indian Army, tentatively entitled, My Grandfather’s Army: Narratives of Nation-Building in Modern India.
