Candidly counting some colonies

In nature hybrid species are usually sterile, but in science the reverse is often true.
Hybrid subjects are often astonishingly fertile, whereas if a scientific discipline remains too pure it usually wilts.
- Francis Crick


What I cannot create, I cannot understand.
- Richard Feynman



I am very comfortable with the idea that we can override biology with free will.
- Richard Dawkins



As a researcher, I am broadly interested in integrating approaches and technologies found in synthetic and systems biology, metabolic engineering, chemical biology and quantitative biology to facilitate microbial engineering. At Virginia Tech, I had my first exposure to these emergent fields while working as an undergraduate to build out and characterize a bi-stable genetic toggle switch. Subsequently, I joined the lab of Dr. Stephen Fong at Virginia Commonwealth University endeavoring toward a PhD in Integrative Life Sciences. Currently, I am involved in projects revolving around ex vivo approaches for cloning and synthetic biology, a synthetic biomolecular delivery system and a cost analysis for the interpretation of genome-scale models. My overall research interests include:

  • Cell Free Systems
  • Synthetic gene assembly
  • Protein engineering
  • Synthetic metagenomics
  • Genome-scale metabolic models
  • Statistical models of biological sequences
  • Engineered microbial consortia
