I am developing cheap, reliable, and simple molecular biology techniques and DIY-equipment for amateur biotechnologists. I founded a diybio-friendly biotech company, Cofactor Bio, with Josh Perfetto.

My main objective is to help the amateur biotechnology movement develop in a safe and positive way. If you want to help, let me know by emailing
