The Thielges group focuses on understanding the role of protein conformations and dynamics in their function, applying multidimensional infrared spectroscopy in combination with protein labeling.
Megan Thielges received her B.S. at Arizona State University (Tempe, AZ) in 2003. She completed graduate training in biophysics funded by a NSF Graduate Fellowship at The Scripps Research Institute (La Jolla, CA) where she earned a Ph.D. under the direction of Professor Floyd E. Romesberg in 2009. She went on to a NSRA-funded postdoctoral fellowship with Professor Michael D. Fayer at Stanford University. In the summer of 2012 she joined the faculty at IU where she is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry.
