Assistant Professor, Bioengineering
Jenn is an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at Stanford, Noyce Family Faculty Fellow, and a Chan Zuckerburg Biohub Investigator.
She received her BS in bioengineering from UC Berkeley and PhD from MIT, where she worked with Christopher Voigt and Alan Grossman to develop a tool for engineering undomesticated Gram positive bacteria. For her postdoctoral research, 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 flower is the Lily!
