How do cells maintain proteostasis under changing environments?
Every cell needs to correctly fold, localize and regulate thousands of proteins at once in the crowded cellular environment. How they pull this off remains, up to today, incompletely understood. I am investigating how life has evolved mechanisms that preserve proteostasis under stress conditions, and how these processes are altered in human disease.
I am a postdoc at Stanford working on a variety of projects at the intersection of biophysics and cell biology. My main aims are focused on unraveling the molecular language of protein aggregation and phase separation, and how this may help us combat human aging and climate change.
