Biological engineering grad student working in tech development, antibiotic discovery, and microbial ecology; excited to help in all communication endeavors with a particular interest in presentations and applications
Jared Kehe (pronounced ‘Kay’ like the letter—you’ll forget, but that’s o-Kehe) is a PhD Candidate and NSF Fellow in the Biological Engineering program at MIT. Co-advised at the Broad Institute by Paul Blainey and Pardis Sabeti, Jared designs screening technologies for antibiotics discovery and microbial ecology. Jared also serves as Copy Co-Chief of the MIT Graduate Student Blog Editorial Board and President of the MIT Microbiome Club. While an undergraduate at UC San Diego, he became passionate about guiding others through constructive learning experiences – he has directed this passion toward a number of different avenues of his life, from being a piano tutor to a Fellow in the Comm Lab. In the Comm Lab, Jared enjoys helping clients on a wide variety of projects, including grant proposals, manuscripts, graduate and medical school applications, figure/graphic design, slide decks/presentations, and scientific communication for the public. Outside the lab, Jared’s interests are largely Californian: blue skies, independent coffee shops, ripe avocados, and philosophical musings. You might also find him running or reading a fantasy book.
