Born in Toronto in 1979. Grew up there, and attended the University of Toronto (UofT, not to be confused with UT, which is some school in texas I hear). Graduated in 2002 with a BASc (BASc = bachelor of applied science = canadian engineering degree) in Biomedical Engineering from the Engineering Science program. I started grad school at MIT in Biological Engineering (BE) in the fall of 2002. In January of 2003 I joined Drew Endy's lab. I mainly joined his lab cause he seemed to be the craziest and most outside-of-the-box faculty member in BE. I have been loosely involved in the synthetic biology community here (although my research is not really synth bio), including the sythetic biology working group, and I helped organize Synthetic Biology 1.0. I am somehow on the OWW steering committee, despite the fact that I rarely use OWW. I seem to be the skeptic/realist in the group, which is needed 'cause I work with a bunch of optimistic hippies.
