Boston Math Professor Accused of Running a Meth Lab

A math professor at Boston University and Suffolk University has been accused of allegedly running a meth lab out of her Somerville apartment with her 20-year-old son, Grigory Genkin.
 
Irina Kristy, 74, was placed on administrative leave at Suffolk University, but continues to teach full time at BU. According to the Boston Globe, she will be arraigned later this month on charges that include distribution of meth, conspiracy to violate the drug law, and drug violation in a school zone.
 
On Nov. 7, a bomb squad removed a large amount of hazardous material from Kristy’s apartment.
 
On Ratemyprofessors.com, the Russian professor was rated poorly numerous times. An influx of commentary has been left on the site after news of the investigation broke this week. 

Lauryn is a senior at Northeastern University majoring in journalism. She has written for Boston.com as well as the HC branch at Northeastern. Lauryn is also a teaching assistant for International Affairs students at Northeastern. In May and June of 2011, she embarked on a reporting trip to the Middle East, where she mastered the art of "man on the street" reporting and gained a new appreciation for falafel. In her spare time, Lauryn enjoys writing, walking around Boston aimlessly, traveling and a unhealthy obsession with her Kindle. She loves eating, French bulldogs and Anderson Cooper. After graduation, she hopes to pursue a career in foreign correspondence or magazine journalism. You can follow her on Twitter @laurynpaiva.
