Warren Francis is a Ph.D. student working in Steve Haddock's lab. His work focuses on understanding the molecular biology and chemistry of polychaetes and other luminous animals, as well as general computational approaches to annotating functions of proteins for non-model organisms. He has a Bachelor's Degree in Biological Sciences from Carnegie Mellon University.
