Job title: Postdoctoral Researcher
Mary Andorfer completed her PhD in chemistry in 2017 in the lab of Prof. Jared Lewis at The University of Chicago. Her thesis work focused on engineering flavin-dependent halogenases for use as biocatalysts. She is currently an NIH postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Prof. Catherine Drennan at MIT where she studies oxygen-sensitive enzymes within the glycyl radical enzyme superfamily using cryo-electron microscopy and other biophysical techniques.
