I am a co-founder of Ginkgo BioWorks, Inc..


Current research

My current work is in the area of synthetic biology.

Other related discussions and projects in which I am involved.


Previous research

  • Prior to coming to MIT, I spent a few months in Tom Blundell's lab at the University of Cambridge working on RAPPER: ab initio conformational search algorithm for restraint-based protein structure modeling.
  • Before that, I worked as an undergrad research assistant for several years in Baldomero Olivera's lab at the University of Utah. I worked on a few different projects during that time including the identification of the post-translational modification enzyme γ-glutamyl carboxylase in Conus and Drosophila. Also, I helped to discover two novel superfamilies of neurotoxins from the venom of the molluscs Conus.

See my publications.


  • National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, 2005-2007.
  • Whitaker Graduate Fellowship in Biomedical Engineering, 2002-2004.
  • Andrew and Edna Viterbi Fellowship in Computational Biology, 2002-2003.


Some non-research but still important discussions and projects in which I am participating.
