Dr. Megan Thielges, Principal Investigator
Hometown: Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, India
Research: I am interested in the structural and conformational characterization of a variety of systems ranging from small molecules (Sugar) to biomolecules (Proteins) using spectroscopic tools like linear infrared and nonlinear 2D IR spectroscopy. To understand the site-specific conformation and dynamics different probes (CD, CN, and CO) are incorporated/utilized to gain knowledge of the selected region.
Interests: I like to travel to explore the culture and cuisine.
Hometown: Lahore, Pakistan
Research: I study protein dynamics of molecular recognition within Src homology 3 (SH3) domains. This entails a blend of bioanalytical techniques and linear FT-IR, using site-specific labeling of proteins and peptides with non-perturbative IR probes (carbon-deuterium bonds), having been implemented to study this system.
Interests: I like to paint and cook in my free time and enjoy the mountains!
