Hi all! I'm a second year Microbiology student working in Timothy Lu's laboratory. My research focuses on using synthetic biology to design novel antimicrobial agents, particularly in engineering designer probiotics and bacteriophages. I'll be TAing the second module of 20.109. Feel free to email me with any questions! - Mark
