Personal Statement

"At MIT and now at Ginkgo Bioworks, I have spent 15 years working to make it easier to reprogram cells to do new things. We build our foundries to scale the process of organism engineering using software and hardware engineering. I look forward to a future where Biology is used more broadly than it is today to address global challenges."
