Charnice Hoegnifioh is a rising sophomore double majoring in Classical Civilizations and Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry. In the Davis Lab, she studies ultrafast protein folding in living cells using temperature-dependent circular dichroism, tryptophan fluorescence quenching, fluorescent resonance energy transfer (FRET) microscopy, and fusion construct labeling systems. Her current project focuses on the experimental characterization of the thermostability and folding dynamics of the protein λ-repressor in its native environment. Outside of the lab, you can find Charnice trying new restaurants around New Haven, working on a show with the Dramat, editing a submission for Helicon: The Yale Undergraduate Journal of Classics, or spending time with friends in Benjamin Franklin (Yale’s best residential college!).
