Member of the UCBerkeley iGEM team 2006, 
and MIT iGEM team 2005 where I had the great 
opportunity to (attempt to) build (useful) devices out of living organisms. 

In iGEM, I learned a great deal about complex system design & debugging  while interacting with some 
really good engineers and biologists. The experience has certainly benefited me in my 
currently-not-bioengineering engineering career.
