Chris Ackerman first became involved with the MYL Foundation through the Alumni Association in 2011. After volunteering as a member of the operations team at the 2012 MassSTAR conference, Chris joined the MassSTAR Conference Planning Committee in 2013 as the Director of Operations, a role he still holds. In 2017, Chris joined the MYL Foundation's Board of Directors as the Director of Alumni Relations, an awesome opportunity for him to encourage new alumni to get involved the same way he did!
Chris graduated from Boston College in 2017 with a BS in Biology and a BA in economics. At BC, Chris was a member of the executive board for BC Splash, a group that invites high school students to BC's campus for enrichment classes. After graduating from BC, Chris joined the MIT Economics department as Senior Research Support Associate. He plans to enroll in graduate school this fall to pursue a PhD in Economics.
