Curt Fischer

Electrofuels Lead

Ginkgo BioWorks

Curt studied chemical engineering as an undergrad at Case Western Reserve University and as a Ph.D. student at MIT. His doctoral thesis, explored experimental approaches to optimizing metabolic pathways for microbial hydrocarbon and biofuel production. From 2009 to 2010 he was a post-doctoral scholar at UC Berkeley, where he studied natural microbial communities using a combination of -omics approaches. Since 2011, he has headed the Electrofuels project at Ginkgo Bioworks, which seeks to develop microbiological approaches for the conversion of electrical energy and carbon dioxide into transportation fuels.
