I work on intelligent biodesign automation through reverse engineering biology. Today engineered biology is fermenting the next bio-industrial revolution through synthetic biology, machine learning, and biomanufacturing automation. Our mission is to foster sustainable industrial biotechnology of bio-based compounds (biomaterials, pharmaceuticals, next-generation chemicals) through the principles of control engineering and machine learning. I envision building artificial intelligence assistants for bionics systems; from biosensors to bio-inspired robotics.
