My name is Yan Xia. I'm from China. I am currently working in Dr. Jens Meiler's lab in Chemistry Department, and I am affiliated with the Chemical and Physical Biology program. I am interested in Structure Biology and my research focuses on de novo membrane protein structure prediction with sparse experimental data. Dr. Meiler's expertise in computation methods development and a hybrid training in both experimental biology and programing attracted me to join his lab.
I finished my undergraduate training in Biological sciences in Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. I love Vanderbilt for its vibrant research environment, its strong faculty, and the degree of freedom offered by IGP/VISP.
