Postdoctoral Fellow

Josh (B.S., Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry, Yale, 2015; Ph.D., Molecular & Cell Biology, UC Berkeley, 2021) completed his doctoral work in the labs of Jennifer Doudna and John Kuriyan, where he studied how protein and nucleic acid conformational dynamics enable the function of CRISPR-associated enzymes in bacterial immunity and genome editing applications. In 2022, he began his postdoc in the Kruse lab, where he is using biochemistry and structural biology to probe bacterial membrane protein function. Outside of lab, Josh likes Baroque music, climbing on real and fake rocks, and sleeping in tents.
