New Job: Director of Advanced Technologies, Zymergen

This is a quick note to say that back in May 2017 I left my lab at NASA and took a new job as the Director of Advanced Technology at Zymergen. This is an amazing company that is pushing the boundaries of science — We are a molecular technologies company, and we engineer the DNA of microbes to turn them into cell-factories. These engineered microbes can then be fermented in giant tanks to economically produce bio-molecules which are enabling new advanced materials and products for the world, and are shifting our economy to a more sustainable bio-based industrial base. And, as you can imagine, there are so many fields of science and technology intersecting here that I’m in my happy zone of constant learning and innovation.

Here is everything you need to know about Zymergen in 3.8 minutes:

You can also read more about what we do on our Technology Blog and Company Blog.

Due to our resounding successes with our clients, we are rapidly scaling and constantly hiring. Come join our team!

I’ll post more eventually, but currently I’m heads down on many exciting projects.
