Congratulations, Dr. Lohia!

Ruchi successfully defended her PhD thesis “Predicting the effect of genetic variance on the sequence-ensemble relationship of intrinsically disordered proteins.” Ruchi’s thesis used techniques ranging from sophisticated simulations requiring millions of supercomputing hours, to bioinformatics surveys of thousands of proteins.

During her thesis, Ruchi produced thousands of plots, diagrams, and figures in an effort to understand why a seemingly subtle change can have substantial effects. Then she did much harder work: left most of these figures on her hard-drive, and selected a compelling few that revealed a very cool scientific story.  Congratulations, Ruchi!
