Mark Styczynski is an Associate Professor in the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He uses metabolomics to study multiple model systems, and to drive development of computational modeling techniques to improve metabolic engineering. He also uses synthetic biology to develop low-cost diagnostics for the developing world. He has received NSF’s CAREER award, DARPA’s Young Faculty Award, and NIH’s MIRA Young Investigator award. He is also on the editorial board for Mathematical Biosciences. Most recently, Mark has helped lead the formation of the Metabolomics Association of North America, which is looking to maintain a close relationship with the Metabolomics Society. He would love to talk with anyone who wants to get involved!
