Justin Lubin


Hi there! My name is Justin Lubin. I’m excited by programming languages, human-computer interaction, biology, social justice, music, and math!

I am a PhD student in computer science advised by Sarah E. Chasins at UC Berkeley, where I’m part of the Programming Systems Research Group. Previously, as an undergraduate at UChicago, I worked extensively with Ravi Chugh. I am very grateful for the fantastic mentorship of these two!

Currently, I am immersing myself in the world of biology to foster a substantive, ongoing, and reciprocal relationship between the fields of programming languages and experimental biology. While contributing to biology research alongside experimental biologists, I aim to answer the following question with my biology collaborators:

What would a programming system look like that empowers experimental biologists without much programming experience to produce code they want by themselves?

I am excited to be collaborating with the lovely folks of the Nuñez Lab in this endeavor!
