I was born in a small town in North Carolina to a young immigrant mother. After 13 uneventful years in the PA and NJ public school systems, I was sent off to the CA public school system. Four fleeting years later, I had a B.S. in bioengineering from berkeley. I loved the west coast, and thus decided I needed to leave. I am now starting my fifth years as a graduate student at mit.


  • Understanding those aspects of biological design that allow for certain robust features of development in the face of large intrinsic and extrinsic variation specifically on non-evolutionary time-scales (I am currently giving up on the past. That may change in the future.).
  • Enabling the design, construction, and use of biological organisms for the purposes of further scientific understanding; keeping extremely aware of the use of engineered biological organisms for other purposes.
  • Property rights as related to biological information and organisms; understanding and reforming current and future frameworks; I really like these people
  • Reforming the reward structures in biological sciences. -- more on this later, for now see Kathleen's thoughts.
  • OpenWetWare of course!
