Roy KamimuraProgram Manager
Roy Kamimura is the project manager for KBase at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBL). He got his BS in chemical engineering from UC Berkeley and his PhD under Gregory Stephanopoulos at MIT on applying pattern recognition techniques to fermentation data. He has worked at Genencor, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Codexis, and Intrexon prior to LBL. A jack of all trades, he has experience in machine learning, strain and enzyme engineering, biochemical engineering from upstream to fermentation to downstream (using sugar, CO/CO2, and CH4 carbon sources) , high throughput screening analysis, bioenergetics, microbial physiology, biosecurity, bioforensics, and business development. His goal is to ensure that KBase achieves global domination in open source computational biology.
