Emilia Arguello

Emilia was born and raised in Ecuador and moved to the U.S. to get her Bachelor’s in Chemistry (Smith College) and her Ph.D. in Chemical Biology (Princeton University). She surveyed RNA epitranscriptomic modifications from a molecular perspective, creating new chemical tools to study the landscape and function of N6-methyladenosine (m6A) and 5-methylcytosine (m5C). She joined our lab as a postdoc to learn about rotavirus RNA through structural probing and RNA-protein interactions. In the lab, Emilia is happiest when learning new techniques and thinking about the chemistry behind things. In her free time, she enjoys running, rock climbing, cooking, and writing about music. She is also an amateur photographer and a lover of bubble tea and good honey
