Justin is a member of the SynBio Apprentice Fall '21 cohort. Prior to joining Octant, Justin attended Johns Hopkins University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Molecular and Cellular Biology. During his undergraduate career, Justin worked in the Davis Lab in the Bloomberg School of Public Health where he explored the relationship between single-cell bacterial growth and stress in murine and microfluidic systems. Justin also founded Agara Bio, a student-led community wet-lab at Johns Hopkins University, and received the Emerging Leader Award for Undergraduates.
Outside of the lab, Justin enjoys playing the guitar and (more recently) getting absolutely pitted.
