Previous Experience:

Prior to joining insitro, I was working on high-throughput genomic engineering in various microbes using automation at a biotech startup. Before then, I was working on epigenetic studies on Arabidopsis thaliana with a focus on DNA repair and environmental stress response at Salk Institute. I also gained experience in studying the mechanisms controlling the early steps in organogenesis in the vertebrate embryo at Gail Martin Lab, UCSF.

Responsibilities at insitro:

I work on building the CRISPR-based genomic discovery platform, focusing on developing novel CRISPR screening technologies and assays.
