She received her B.Sc. in chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and her Ph.D. in molecular biophysics andd biochemistry from Yale University. The major focus of her lab is to provide biological insights into how dynamic properties of proteins are related to function and methodological tools to enable better understanding of dynamic and disordered states. Most recently, her lab has probed the biophysics of protein phase separation and how it regulates cellular condensates and biological function.
