Chemical Engineerg, DoD

I am a Biotechnology technical professional experienced with leading teams and prosecuting academic, industrial, and government research in the lab. My proudest accomplishments have been (1) the enzyme engineering work I performed on the DuPont/BP Butamax joint venture to develop an isobutanol-producing yeast, (2) the successful push to commercialize 24 ELISA assays as part of the V-PLEX team at Meso Scale Diagnostics, and (3) earning my doctorate as part of the laboratory of Frances Arnold (2018 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry) at Caltech.
