As of July of 2010, I have finished my laboratory rotations and joined George Church’s lab at the Harvard Medical School Department of Genetics. I’m working in Dr. Church’s lab space at the Wyss Institute of Biologically Inspired Engineering across the river in Boston.

My work in the Church lab will focus on manipulating bacterial and mammalian genomes and assaying the phenotypic effects of these changes using high-throughput methods. I plan to harness and improve a number of new technologies that the lab has been developing, including oligo chip-based gene synthesis and MAGE (multiplex automated genome engineering).
