PhD Program in molecular biology, entered 2016
I am a fifth year graduate student in the Molecular Biology PhD program and am working with Profs. Jonikas and Wingreen. My research focuses on the photosynthesis of green algae, with the hope to transform the more efficient photosynthesis to crops to boost their yields. More specifically, I am interested in the phase separation of an algal organelle called the pyrenoid, and want to understand how its assembly is regulated.
