Before joining Gryphon in 2020, he served as the Biosafety Officer and Responsible Official for the George Mason University (GMU) Select Agent Program, managing the program and interacting with federal agencies on behalf of the university. Prior to that position, he conducted research on host-pathogen interactions at GMU, which included experience working in high containment.
