Elijah Gallimore-Repole


I am currently pursuing a Molecular Biology PhD at Princeton University, deeply motivated by my experiences growing up in Kingston, Jamaica. Growing up in a developing nation exposed me to the numerous detrimental impacts of unsustainable economic and industrial practices, compelling me to explore biotechnology as a catalyst for sustainable development. Driven by this passion, my current research focuses on the exploration and engineering of non-conventional yeasts for sustainable bioprocessing. Through targeted bioengineering of non-conventional yeasts, my goal is to enhance current bioprocessing practices by optimizing their variety of industrially beneficial characteristics, thereby providing engineered yeasts as platforms for gradually replacing unsustainable industrial processes.
