Jenn Brophy

Assistant Professor, Bioengineering

Noyce Family Faculty Fellow

Chan Zuckerburg Biohub Investigator

Jenn received her BS in bioengineering from UC Berkeley and PhD from MIT, where she worked with Chris Voigt and Alan Grossman to develop a tool for engineering undomesticated Gram positive bacteria. As a postdoc, she worked with José Dinneny at Stanford to engineer spatial patterns of gene expression across plant tissues using synthetic genetic circuits. She is interested in applying synthetic biology to address climate change issues and enhance sustainability. Her favorite flowers are Lilies!

Bella Archibald

Graduate student, Bioengineering

NSF Graduate Research Fellow

bellaa [at] stanford [dot] edu

Bella is interested in engineering synthetic systems for bioremediation and biomanufacturing. When she's not in the lab, she enjoys exploring new trails, and her favorite plant is the Arrowleaf balsamroot!

Soyeon Choi

Postdoc, Bioengineering

sychoi [at] stanford [dot] edu

Soyeon is interested in improving the resilience of agronomically important crops. She wants to avoid adverse outcomes from climate changes by developing and utilizing synthetic circuits that spatially and temporally tune the expression of developmental genes.
