Education

Research interests

My research interests include Synthetic Biology, Bioethics & Gene patenting, Biomolecular Computers & 'in vivo' Computing and the use of personal genomics for diagnostics.

  1. Synthetic Biology: The emerging potential for personal genomics to be used as point-of-care diagnostic tools is fascinating. Also, I am intrigued by the implications of the design of a minimal cell.
  2. Bioethics & Gene Patenting: I'm outreach chair for HUBS, and am particularly interested in the evolving "state of gene patenting"
  3. Biomolecular Computers & 'in vivo' Computing: Living cells that can be programmed to sense, process a set of "instructions" and respond to these "instructions."


Recent research experience includes:

  • Summer ’10 Harvard iGEM Team: Engineered personalized hypo-allergenic foods using RNAi techniques
  • Fall ’09 and Spring ’10: Engineered optical communication in yeast via mating type switching
  • Fall ’09 LS100r: Synthetic biology research on 3D nanostructures using caDNAno and PCR techniques
  • Summer ’09 Harvard iGEM Team: Engineered optically communicating yeast and bacteria
  • Spring ’09 LS100r: Synthetic biology research on in vivo computing using RNAi techniques
  • 9/’06-5/’07, 9/’07-5/’08 DSHS: Computational biology tools- Blast, ClustalW, BioPython
