Sri is curently a Staff Scientist in the Synthetic Biology Platform at the Wyss Institute as a member of the Advanced Technology Team. He was a postdoc in George Church's lab in the Department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and the Wyss Institute from 2009-2011. From 2007-2009, Sri worked at a small Cambridge-area startup called Joule Unlimited. He is also on the Board of Directors for OpenWetWare. He previously did a short postdoctoral stint in Mike Laub's lab working on cell cycle in Caulobacter crescentus. Prior to the Laub lab, he was a graduate student in Drew Endy's lab and worked on understanding the development of a simple virus (T7) that infects E. coli. As an undergraduate at UC Berkeley, Sri worked with Adam Arkin, Dale Kaiser, and Roy Welch on modeling traveling wave formation in M. xanthus.
Chris is an academic researcher focused on technologies for extremely rapid synthesis of DNA. He is also an industry consultant in the areas of DNA synthesis, lab automation, informatics and computational biology. Previously, he was a project manager at Codon Devices where he led the development of novel DNA synthesis technologies, library construction, and metabolic engineering. His work in the Molecular Machines Group at the MIT Medical Lab demonstrated a novel technique for low cost DNA microarray synthesis utilizing photoelectrochemistry. Chris received his masters and dual undergrad degrees from MIT and is currently a PhD candidate in Stanford's Department of Bioengineering.
