I'm a molecular biologist turned biohacker. In 2009 I co-founded Genspace, the world's first community biolab, in Brooklyn NY. I believe that democratization of biotech will result in better public understanding of it and jumpstart innovation.

Are you more interested in hands-on or discussions/talks?

It's been shown many times that hands-on learning is most effective. That's my preferred way to engage a new subject.

Do you have a biohacking project you want to pursue?
