About Me

I'm a scientist who studies the structure and dynamics of biomolecules using X-rays.

Currently, I work in Nozomi Ando's lab at Princeton, where my goal is to understand the complex motions of multi-subunit metalloenzymes. To measure these subtle protein motions, I use an X-ray technique called diffuse scattering.

Before Princeton, I was a graduate student in Lois Pollack's group at Cornell. There, I measured the effects of electrostatic repulsion on the structure of flexible RNA and DNA molecules.

In order to perform these X-ray experiments, I travel to particle accelerators such as the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) and the Advanced Photon Source (APS) in Chicago.
