I'm most interested in companies building deep core technologies to solve complex challenges in human health and planetary resiliency. I'm particularly drawn towards data-driven companies, and I focus heavily on those innovating at the intersection of data science and life science. I'm intrigued by the possibilities of using robotics, automation, miniaturization, and new high-throughput techniques to rapidly generate novel and actionable insights for users.
I generally do not invest companies that lack a clear and defensible core technology.
