Research Interests:
  • Synthetic biology
  • Environmental genomics

I am very excited by two disciplines in science right now. The first is synthetic biology, which aims to engineer living things by manipulating DNA and dreams of standardized design principles. The second is environmental genomics, which observes ecosystems via DNA and attempts to describe how they are designed. I believe that scientists representing these two disciplines need to be working together consistently to capitalize on emerging technologies that solve global problems. I want to build a platform that helps makes this happen.
