I joined the lab as a postdoctoral research associate in May 2023. My perspective is get advantage of NMR as a versatile spectroscopy technique to develop a thermodynamical framework for the oligomerization of chaperons in the presence of ameloid substrates. Before joining the lab, I finished my studies in Biophysical Chemistry at Uni-Frankfurt (PhD) and Université de Montréal (MSc), and in Chemistry at Bu-Ali Sina University (BSc).
I joined the lab for my PhD in 2021 having completed an MBiolSci in Biochemistry at the University of Sheffield. My research project there, with Prof. Mike Williamson, looked at finding the best way to calculate binding affinities using NMR chemical shift perturbations. My PhD project aims to apply the power of NMR spectroscopy to further understand the key role of Hsp40 chaperones in regulating the chaperone network. Outside of the lab, I enjoy baking, running and finding new places to eat in London.
Undergad. student (2023)
Ella joined the lab in 2023 after a year abroad at ETH (Fred Allain lab) to study transient protein-protein interactions in the chaperone network by NMR. After a very successful project she is continuing her studies as a PhD student at the Crick Institute. Good luck Ella!
