Elucidating mechanisms by which light interacts with matter to generate characteristic spectral signatures has fundamental and applied impact in fields ranging from optics to surface science and applications as diverse as displays and sensors. We propose to explore a fundamentally divergent approach for generating structural color by controlling interference occurring when light undergoes multiple total… Continue Reading

My laboratory investigates the role of RNA in cellular organization and in neurodegenerative disease. There are currently three active areas of research in my laboratory. One, we are studying how RNA can act as a scaffold for cellular compartmentalization by mediating the assembly of RNA-containing granules. Second, we examine how regulated RNA-DNA interactions contribute to… Continue Reading

With the ultimate goal of rapid, automated determination of molecular structures at atomic resolution from as few as a thousand molecules, my group has pioneered the development of new methods in electron diffraction. Using these methods, we interrogate the atomic structure of varied molecular crystals. Equipped with a 300 KeV electron microscope, we are in… Continue Reading
