David Ross is the lead scientist for the Living Measurement Systems Foundry in the Cellular Engineering Group at NIST. He currently works on methods for predictive engineering of biological function, with a focus on biomolecular sense and response systems. His most recent work has focused on large-scale measurements of genotype-phenotype landscapes and machine-learning approaches to make use of the data generated by those measurements.
