Jordan is a member of the SynBio Apprentice Fall '21 cohort. She will graduate with a B.A. in molecular biology from Scripps College May 2021.
As an undergraduate she worked in a protein engineering lab to create better luciferases for use in in vivo multicomponent bioluminescence imaging (BLI). She also worked on computational projects, like analyzing structures of unannotated small open reading frame (sm-ORF) encoded proteins en masse and using Rosetta to predict beneficial mutations to introduce into luciferases for BLI applications.
Outside of science her interests include environmentalism, stand-up comedy, and serenading her dog (to no avail) on the piano.
