Helena is a fourth year graduate student in Prof. Linda Hsieh-Wilson's group. Her research interests are developing new methods for mammalian glycan detection and studying the role of specific glycan modifications in protein structure-function relationships. When not in the lab, Helena likes to spend time with her two bunnies, Bunny and Elliot.
Originally from the Bay Area, Maia graduated from Rice University and is now a second year chemical biology graduate student at Caltech. When not in the lab, Maia loves playing board and card games, exploring different coffee shops, drinking tea, and having TV show and movie marathons with friends.
