Sawsan Wehbi

PhD Student

I am a Genetics GIDP PhD student, minoring in Astrobiology. I will be working on the long-term evolution of amino acid frequencies across the proteome. At the moment, I am working to assign ages to ancient protein domains. I have a background in bioinformatics and phylogenetics and I’m interested in the origins of life and Astrobiology.
