Tristan de Rond, Ph.D.

Tristan conducted his undergraduate studies in Biochemistry and Computer Science at Brown University, where he gained a great appreciation for secondary metabolism under the mentorship of Jason Sello. To further learn about life's biosynthetic capabilities and how to harness them for good, he joined Jay Keasling's group at UC Berkeley, where he focused on enzyme discovery using high-throughput mass spectrometry. Now at SIO, Tristan seeks to explore the abundant existing biodiversity – and hence, biosynthetic potential – in the world's oceans to expand the biosynthetic toolbox.
