Board Member


I am a biohacker from the San Francisco Bay Area.

As a Board Member at BioCurious, I have organized events, classes and community projects for the past 4 years. I am also a Board Member of Real Vegan Cheese, an open source project to create a synthetic cheese from genetically modified yeast. I have recently become an adviser to the Latin American Network of Biohacker Spaces. I have been a leader on two iGEM teams in 2014 and 2015 and am a member of multiple community lab science projects.

My ambition is to continue to push open source science and for the creation of more biohacking spaces, democratizing science globally. The Open Insulin Project is important to me because it stretches the boundaries of a biohacking project and is useful to aid in diabetes research.
