Kenneth McGuinness is fresh off a post-doc in industry at Merck Inc., Co. where he designed thermostable enzymes using artificial intelligence models. He is excited to build machine learning models to help understand the complexity of nanomachines in microbial ancestors and the synergy between the geosphere and biosphere. In his free time, he enjoys listening and playing music and playing fetch with his beautiful Hungarian Puli named Marley.
