Jennifer Brophy

Assistant Professor
Stanford University

Jenn is an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at Stanford. Her lab develops technologies that enable the genetic engineering of plants and their associated microbes with the goal of driving innovation in agriculture for a sustainable future. She received her BS in bioengineering from UC Berkeley and PhD from MIT. As a graduate student, she worked with Chris Voigt and Alan Grossman to develop a tool for engineering soil microbiomes in situ. For her postdoctoral research, she worked with José Dinneny at Stanford to engineer plant root structure using synthetic genetic circuits. Her research has been supported by a National Science Foundation graduate research fellowship (NSF GRFP), a Burroughs Wellcome Fund Career Award at the Scientific Interface (CASI), and Chan Zuckerburg Biohub Investigatorship.
