I am a 3rd year Chemical Engineering PhD student at the University of Washington working at Mary Lidstrom's Lab and it is so fun!

My first year was spent investigating methanotrophic metabolism in pure cultures and a model ecosystem in a team that combined transcriptomics, metabolomics, and single-cell observation. Currently I am helping engineer E. coli to make biofuel precursors from electricity and CO2.

I started the Lidstrom Lab OWW wiki and am addicted to posting what I learn! Amanda Smith is significant contributor as well.
