I am a Ph.D. student in Systems Engineering at Colorado State University, working in Dr. Peccoud’s research group on the development of a high-throughput plasmid assembly pipeline. I previously worked with liposomal interface interactions of small molecules, earning my Masters Degree in Analytical Chemistry in the Spring of 2023. I use this background in chemistry to support the processes that I develop in the lab to better automate workflows in the production and sequencing of plasmids ..read more

I started as a biological chemistry PhD graduate student in 2020, after studying enzymes involved in plant starch degradation in my undergraduate studies. Here, I conduct research in cell free reconstitution of protein-based mesoscale structures derived from bacteria. I am interested in protein engineering and developing mesoscale protein-based tools. I am also interested in applying the protein tools I develop for reductionistic studies of the biological systems they’re derived from ..read more

I am the founder of Orion Integrated Biosciences. I lead a group of researchers developing new techniques to decode microbes’ genomic information and map short DNA fragments to their source of origin, virulence, and possible genetic manipulation. My research includes the use of artificial intelligence algorithms including large language models, neural networks, and generative adversarial networks to design a new generation of biotentities for biotechnology applications. I also lead the advancement of a new generation of analytical tools for risk assessment and early warning of biothreats that ..read more

From Intent to Impact: Enabling Transdisciplinary Research for Responsible Scientific Stewardship
EBRC
by Kaitlyn Duvall
2w ago
Publication Date: March 2024 | Originally published in the Journal of Science Policy & Governance Global challenges are complex and must be tackled in a holistic manner. Understanding and addressing them requires collaboration across disciplines, often uniting the humanities and social and natural sciences, to ask better questions and identify practical and revolutionary solutions. Universities can be excellent vehicles for transformational change as they educate the next generation of civically-motivated thinkers to create meaningful action and impact. Too often systemic, artificial barri ..read more
