Anthony Mustoe, Ph.D.

I am currently an Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellow in Kevin Weeks' lab in the Department of Chemistry at UNC Chapel Hill. My postdoctoral research has focused on both developing and applying state-of-the-art chemical probing experiments and computational modeling strategies to understand the biological function of mRNAs and non-coding RNAs.

I received my Ph.D. in Biophysics in 2014 from the University of Michigan, where I studied under Charles Brooks III and Hashim Al-Hashimi. My graduate work primarily focused on developing and applying computational biophysical models to understand how RNA secondary structure influences RNA tertiary folding and dynamics.  

I did my undergraduate studies at Washington University in St. Louis, graduating in 2009 with degrees in Chemical Engineering and Mathematics.

I am originally a native of Evanston, IL.
