Andela received her PhD from Columbia University in New York in 2013, after which she moved onto a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Cambridge, where she was also a Research Fellow of Emmanuel College. She is currently a Junior Group Leader in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at UCL.
Andela uses computer simulations to study biological assembly. She is interested in how proteins assemble “on-demand” into nanososcale structures that generate the molecular machinery of life. She is also devoted to understanding uncontrolled protein aggregation in the context of neurodegenerative diseases.
