I am an Assistant Professor at UCLA in the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department. I was previously a member of the Advanced Technology Team in the Synthetic Biology Platform at the Wyss Institute. I was a postdoc in George Church's lab in the Department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and the Wyss Institute from 2009-2011. From 2007-2009, I was the first employee of a biofuel startup called Joule Unlimited. I got my ScD in Biological Engineering at MIT in Drew Endy's lab and worked on understanding the development of a simple virus (T7) that infects E. coli.
