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.

Joshua Wofford

Joshua Wofford

I was born in Carrollton, TX, and moved to Aubrey, TX at a young age, where I finished through high school. I graduated from the University of North Texas in May 2013 with a Bachelor's of Science in Chemistry and a Bachelor's of Science in Physics. I joined the Ph.D. Program in Fall 2013 and joined the Lindahl lab that October. My research involves using mathematical modeling and biophysical characterization of yeast cells to understand the mechanisms involved in the metabolism in iron.

I was born in Houston and raised in Alvin, Texas. I obtained a BS in Molecular & Cell Biology with a minor in Mathematics at Texas A&M University in 2014. I started graduate school in the fall of 2015 and joined Dr. Lindahl’s lab in December. My research projects right now involve mathematical modeling of iron trafficking in yeast cells as well as experimentally testing the predictions. Potential projects include determination of compounds exported from yeast mitochondria.

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

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.

Joel Ferrer

Joel Ferrer

I was born and raised in a suburb of Houston, Texas called Clear Lake. Currently, I am pursuing a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences. After graduation, my goal is pursue a Ph.D in a biochemistry related field and continue to conduct medical research and possibly teach as well. When I'm not being academic, I love to be with friends, go golfing, and play video games. Currently, my research focuses on low-molecular-mass metals in the Gottigen mini-pig brain as it relates to neurodegenerative disorders especially Parkinson's Disease.
