Currently working in the field of synthetic biology as a CSO of a startup in San Francisco. We are engineering a strain of Gluconacetobacter xylinus for the overproduction of microbial cellulose. I've also worked at JGI and participated in iGEM. When I'm not thinking about synbio/startup stuff, I'm on Reddit. When I'm not on Reddit, I'm playing tennis.
