Kicking off 2020, we welcome our newest postdoc, Ellen Reed! Ellen joins us from the University of Pennsylvania, where she completed her thesis work in the lab of Dan Hammer. Her research focused on engineering phase separating intrinsically disordered proteins to respond to external stimuli such as light. Here at Princeton, Ellen will be working as a joint post-doc between the Toettcher lab and the Aoki lab at the National Institute of Natural Sciences in Japan. We’re very excited to have you in lab, Ellen!
