Paul A. Lindahl - Principal Investigator

Paul Lindahl

I grew up in Chicago where I became fascinated with biochemistry in high school. I attended North Park College, also in Chicago, and majored in chemistry. I attended graduate school at MIT and did a post-doc at the University of Minnesota. In 1988 I joined the faculty in the Chemistry Department at Texas A&M University, where I have been ever since. In 1996 I married Lora Anne Schneider. We have three kids, including Laena, Karl and Grace.

I was born and grew up in Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam. I graduated from Texas Christian University with a BS degree in Biochemistry. I joined Paul Lindahl Lab in the Spring of 2015. My research project involves characterizing the Low-Molecular-Mass complexes in the vacuoles and cytosol of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. I am interested in learning and using biophysical techniques to understand iron trafficking at the molecular level. Outside of lab, I enjoy cooking and spending time with my cat.

I am from Greenbrier, AR. I attended undergrad just down the road at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, AR. After graduating in May 2017 with a Bachelor's of Science in Chemistry and a Bachelor's of Science in Applied Mathematics, I joined the Lindahl lab that summer. My graduate research focuses on characterizing low-molecular-mass pools in E. coli cytosol and yeast mitochondria using different biophysical techniques. Outside of my studies, I enjoy cooking and working out

Rachel Shepherd

I was born in Tomball, Tx. but moved around a bit in my childhood. I lived in Trinidad & Tobago before settling down in Katy, Tx. for middle and high school. I went to undergrad at Trinity University in San Antonio, graduating with a B.S. in Biochemistry in 2017 after spending four years in research with the Rieske Protein in the Hunsicker-Wang lab. I joined the Lindahl Lab in the fall of 2017 and am currently working on elucidating the composition of the LMM species that are utilized in Iron Sulfur Cluster Assembly. In my free time, I read books and spend time spreading awareness of chronic and invisible illness.

I was born in a city called Hyderbad in southern part of India. After completing undergraduate degree in Bachelor of Technology in Biotechnology in 2014, I moved to Poland for a year in 2015 and worked there as a research assistant at Warsaw University of Life Sciences. I joined the PhD program of Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at Texas A&M in Fall 2016 and became a part of Lindahl Group in late 2017. My research focusses on characterizing Fe trafficking in Nucleus using Yeast as a model organism. I have several hobbies including photography, sketching and gaming. I believe in living as if today it is the last day of my life.
