David BernsteinPostdoctoral Researcher
David is a postdoctoral researcher in the Arkin Laboratory at UC Berkeley. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Vermont. He then earned his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Boston University working in the lab of Daniel Segrè where he developed computational approaches to study the metabolic properties of microbes and microbial communities. In the Arkin lab, he is focused on combining genome-scale metabolic modeling and machine learning to predict microbial phenotype from genotype. Outside of the lab, David enjoys spending time outdoors skiing (both downhill and cross-country) and hiking.
