I am curently a postdoc in George Church's lab in the Department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and the Wyss Institute. From September 2007 to February 2009, I worked at a small Cambridge-area startup called Joule Biotechnologies. I am also on the Board of Directors for OpenWetWare. I previously did a short postdoctoral stint in Mike Laub's lab working on cell cycle in Caulobacter crescentus. Prior to the Laub lab, I was a graduate student in Drew Endy's lab and worked on understanding the development of a simple virus (T7) that infects E. coli. As an undergraduate at UC Berkeley, I worked with Adam Arkin, Dale Kaiser, and Roy Welch on modeling traveling wave formation in M. xanthus.



  • Developing technologies on making biology easier to engineer.
  • Enabling the design, construction, and use of biological organisms for the purposes of further scientific understanding; keeping extremely aware of the use of engineered biological organisms for other purposes.
  • Understanding those aspects of biological design that allow for certain robust features of development in the face of large intrinsic and extrinsic variation specifically on non-evolutionary time-scales (I am currently giving up on the past. That may change in the future.).
  • Property rights as related to biological information and organisms; understanding and reforming current and future frameworks; I really like these people
  • OpenWetWare of course!
