I'm a postdoc in Herbert Sauro's lab at University of Washington. I have just started a synthetic biology project and will be an advisor for the UW iGEM 2008 team. Hopefully I will be able to contribute something here soon.

Education

  • 2007, PhD, Michigan State University, Microbiology and Molecular Genetics
  • 1999, BS, University of Arizona, Molecular and Cellular Biology

Research interests

  1. Synthetic biology (standards, modular gene networks, stochasticity, feed-forward loops)
  2. Evolution (experimental and directed)
  3. Mutation rates under stress
