Research Focus

I use cryo-electron microscopy to study the structure-function relationships of 1) antibiotic-bound ribosomes and 2) the Trk-fused-gene in the native environment of the cell.

If you can’t find me in the lab, I’m usually…

at Starbucks sipping my Caffe latte or I’m dancing to Persian Pop songs or, once in a while, I’m painting with pastel and oil colors.

Favorite place in Tallahassee?

Tom Brown Park or Winehouse at Market st. when they have a live Jazz.

What are your future plans?

I like both academic and industry positions. I am still exploring.
