The future is biology —

I'm Niko.

I spent seven years as a scientist and built new gene-editing tools. Then, I went to science journalism school. I'm a genetic designer and writer based in Boston, MA.

Over at Codon — my weekly newsletter — I share essays at the intersection of biology and technology.
