I received my Ph.D. in computer science in 2004, after being part of PDOS at CSAIL, MIT. See my LinkedIn profile.

With Melina Fan, I co-founded Addgene in 2004, a non-profit organization that archives and distributes DNA-based reagents called plasmids. Addgene is a global leader in promoting and facilitating sharing in science. By 2011, Addgene has become a financially stable, self sustaining enterprise working with thousands of academic institutions world-wide.
