Meidi Wang

Meidi Wang is currently a PhD student in the Bennett lab at Rice University. Her current research focuses on engineering microbial communities and designing emergent responses to environmental signals including gradient sensing ability and collective chemotaxis, which expand the capability of microbial population-level performances. Coming from an engineering background, she finds engineering biology is the perfect combination of accurate control of artificial systems and infinite possibilities of natural systems and is passionate about exploring more in the field of synthetic biology.
