Biography (Personal Interest): 

I have spent the last few years exploring the contribution of genetic engineering in biofuel production, in developing technologies to better utilize carbon waste and in identifying methods for easier detection of microbes. I am currently working on the use of DNA for anti counterfeiting applications. In my free time, I like watching science fiction and playing racquetball.
