I am an advisor for this great team. I am a scientist (formerly some kind of a lab rat... until I had my baby) with around 20 years of experience in microbiology. I have worked with entero bacterias, enteroviruses, flaviviruses, alphaviruses and new emergent pathogens. I have a PhD in biochemistry and right now I work at UCSF. I met Edwin in a meetup at Berkeley Biolabs, where I learned for the first time about biohackers, and discovered a completely new world for me: people from different backgrounds, and some of them with almost no previous training in science, doing science!
Edwin is very interested and passionate about making science available for everybody. He has worked very hard to develop this idea. I have been questioning and challenging his ideas all the time, I wonder how he still talks to me.
