Douglas McCloskey received his B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of California, Irvine. He graduated with Magna Cum Laude Honors while participating in the campus wide honors program and competing in Division 1 NCAA Men’s Tennis. Douglas is now pursuing his Ph.D. in the department of Bioengineering at the University of California, San Diego. His research involves using a systems biology approach to understand the biochemical drivers of adaptive laboratory evolution in microorganisms. Douglas specializes in acquiring and analyzing metabolomics and fluxomics data using LC-MS/MS, integrating multi-omics data with metabolic networks of metabolism for deeper biological insight, and developing front-end and back-end software for the rapid dissemination and visualization of such data. After graduation, Douglas plans to continue the development of multi-omics data analytics and software that aid in the cell factory design process to produce fine and commodity chemicals from environmentally friendly and renewable resources.
