will bosworth bosworth AT mit.edu mit class of 2008 pursing a bs in mechanical engineering with a minor in biology
currently a member of the UCBerkeley iGEM team, designing cellular logic gates in cells. Continuing this project in the endy lab @ mit in fall2006.
previously a member of the MIT iGEM team] in 2005, where I did alot of struggling and learning. We tried to modify a chemical pathway to create a platform that could be easily modified to sense different environmental factors. Unfortunately, our method involved significantly modifying proteins!
concrete interests: bio-electro-mechanical system design and MEMS - living cell interaction, electro-mechanical motion control & creating the mechanisms and terminology for analogous control in biological systems, quantitative models matching actual results. I must be interested in something that doesn't sound "far out and far away," too.
abstract interests: innovation, righteous engineering, design, self assembly, abstraction, exploring and managing complexity, simplicity, big words.
