Ph.D., Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, The Scripps Research Institute, 2014

Current Research Focus:

1. Editing deficiency of tRNA synthetases have been shown to cause cell death, and can lead to disease, such as neurodegeneration. My first project is focused on understanding the consequences of mistranslation caused by the editing deficient Valyl-tRNA synthetase.
2. In addition to having a role in protein translation, tRNA synthetases have a diverse set of non-canonical functions. My second project is focused on studying the novel functions of a natural Alanyl-tRNA synthetase fragment.
