Biography

Eva Y. Chi, Ph.D. received B.S. degrees in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Chemical Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder. After a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Chicago, she joined the University of New Mexico in 2008, where she is now an Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering. Her research interests lie within soft condensed matter and include physical and self-assembly properties of proteins, polymers, and biomembranes. Specifically, her group is interested in understanding the misfolding, self- assembly, and toxicity of intrinsically disordered proteins that are involved in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases.
