Daisy Duan (she/her/hers) is a third year PhD student in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry in the Koleske Lab. It was not until attending high school and taking physical sciences classes Daisy was fascinated with how biology and physics concepts could be combined to help us understand biological phenomena. Upon graduating from Johns Hopkins with degrees in Biophysics and Applied Math & Stats, Daisy became the first in her family to not only finish high school but college. Now at Yale, Daisy is currently focused on elucidating the mechanism by which a tyrosine kinase impacts microtubule dynamics to regulate cellular morphogenesis and migration. Outside of the lab, Daisy loves to explore new cities, hike, and cook with friends in her spare time.
