I'm a PhD student in the Harvard Biophysics program working in the lab of George Church. I combine computational and experimental approaches to engineer biology, including recoding genomes and engineering proteins.
Before the Church Lab, I was an engineer at Google. I did my undergraduate and MEng work at MIT in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. For my master's thesis, I experimented with intelligent tools for assisting people in finding information on the web.
In parallel to biology, I remain interested in augmenting human intelligence. Outside of the Church Lab, I’ve been working on Overlapping Minds, a web application for building a mirror of one's mind, starting with capturing thoughts and links and building associations among them.
