I was trained as an X-ray crystallographer and received my Ph.D. in chemistry from University of Arkansas in 2008. From 2009 to 2014, I worked at Purdue University as a Post-Doc and focused on bacteriophage T7 maturation and genome packaging mechanism using cryo-EM single particle analysis (SPA). Beside solving biological problems, I also worked on new technique development such as affinity grid and grapheneoxide grid. I started my professional career as the technical director of the BioEM facility here at UC Davis in 2014. Since then, we have expanded our facility and cryo-EM capabilities by installing a new generation of electron microscope, Thermo Fisher Glacios and Gatan K3 direct detector. With extensive experience in SPA, my goal here is to train and help users going through the entire SPA pipeline for obtaining atomic resolution of structures from various samples.
