I work in the Wilmer Eye Institute at the JHU School of Medicine. I learned about OpenWetWare from the 24C3 Endy lecture, and I've joined because I am interested in contributing to the BBF Technical Standards.

Research Interests

  1. Basic Synthetic Biology
    1. Epigenetics - Manipulating chromatin structures as a form of wetware programming in eukaryotic systems
    2. Biocircuits - Designing devices and chassis for cellular computation and communications
    3. Virology - Engineering viruses and pseudoviruses to deliver biological parts to cellular systems
  2. Applied Synthetic Biology
    1. Immunology - Defining the theoretical framework and designing components for an artificial immune system
    2. Astrobiology - Engineering sensory devices and energy pathways for extreme environments
    3. Biocomputing - Exploring silicon-based hardware-wetware communications interface
  3. Biosecurity and Biosafety
    1. Policy - Balancing the needs of an open hacker community with access restrictions
    2. Testing and Certification - Establishing an "Underwriters Laboratories" for developing standards and test procedures for biosafety
    3. Countermeasures - Creating fail-safe mechanisms to mitigate potential synthetic biology abuses

Current Projects

My wet lab contributions are documented in my OWW Notebook.
