Thomas E. Gorochowski

Complexity Scientist and Synthetic Biologist

I am currently a Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Biological Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA. My research focuses on merging new techniques being developed in synthetic biology with computational modelling and analysis to better understand the rules that govern how natural systems are pieced together to function effectively. This work is being carried out within the Voigt lab in collaboration with the Broad Institute as part of the MIT-Broad Foundary initiative.

I have a very broad range of research interests spanning from complexity, network theory and dynamical systems to synthetic biology and evolution. When not working behind the computer or in the lab, I enjoy racket sports (mostly tennis and badminton), spending time far away from civilization in the great outdoors (hiking, camping, snowboarding), and fly fishing on warm summers evening down by the river.

Don't worry, I'm not as scary as I look in the picture.
