Emma Silvester

Emma completed her PhD in Andrew Turberfield’s Lab in the department of physics, studying the folding properties of DNA and RNA nanostructures. Following her PhD, she worked as a postdoc in the Division of Structural Biology in Kay Grünewald's lab, using DNA nanostructures to develop new tools for cryo-electron microscopy and tomography. In the Baldwin lab, Emma was using cryo-electron tomography to study the structural properties of membraneless organelles, formed by phase separation of intrinsically disordered proteins.
