Jared Kehe (pronounced ‘Kay’ like the letter—you’ll forget, but that’s o-Kehe) is a first year Biological Engineering graduate student and NSF Fellow at MIT. He currently works in Paul Blainey’s lab developing a technology for high throughput combinatorial antibiotic screening. He also serves on the MIT BE Graduate Student Board and the MIT Microbiome Club Board. While an undergraduate at UC San Diego, he became passionate about teaching. In addition to tutoring and TA-ing, he spent two years writing a course reader about physiology from a bioengineer’s perspective. Jared’s interests are largely Californian—blue skies, independent coffee shops, ripe avocados, and philosophical musings. When not in the lab, he is probably running, reading a fantasy book, or teaching piano lessons.
