Lishi is a Ph.D. student in Physics studying mechanisms of size regulation of organelles within cells. She is a member of the Kondev Group.
MRSEC Research in the Kondev Lab
“Cells contain a variety of organelles, some of which are tightly regulated in terms of their size. These sizes often play a non-trivial role in their functions. I am interested in understanding how cells use a variety of size-sensing proteins to control the size of these organelles. In the Kondev group, we use statistical and computational tools to answer such questions, while working in close collaboration with experimentalists.”
