Postdoctoral Fellow
Joined the Pyle Lab: 2018
Education: Ph.D.
Research project(s): Structural study of RNA splicing and retrotransposition, and structural study of RLRs in immune system. I am interested in studying structure and function of signaling complexes. I want to use Cryo-EM and other biochemical techniques to characterize the coactivation of LGP2 and MDA5 signaling in vivo and in vitro.  I am interested in how LGP2 could enhance MDA5 signaling in vivo and in vitro.
Favorite molecule: U
Scientist hero: Yunyu Shi
Outside of lab, I enjoy: Cooking, hiking, hanging out with family and friends.
