Scientific Advisor, Plant Systems

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. Now as an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at Stanford she leads a lab investigating the use of synthetic genetic circuits in plants to modify the size and shape of plants and testing the modified plants for improved environmental stress tolerance.
