About me

Hi! I’m Stephen Malina. I’m currently the Head of Engineering at Dyno Therapeutics working on applying machine learning to engineer better gene therapy vectors. More broadly, I’m interested in the intersection of Machine Learning and engineering biology. Even more broadly, I like to think and talk about how we can make the future better and happen faster through better science, technology, and institutional mechanisms.

Before joining Dyno, I was a CS MS student at Columbia doing research at the intersection of ML, causal inference, and epigenomics in the Knowles Lab. Prior to that, I worked at UberEats as a software engineer and at Compass before that.

In addition to writing here, I’ve been experimenting with writing shorter, lower effort posts on Substack. Besides that, I keep a low social media presence, but, if you enjoy what I have to say or want to rant at me, you should email me at stephenmalina@gmail.com. If you’re interested in what I’m currently hacking on, check out my Github. I occasionally rant on Twitter as well despite my best efforts not to.
