Spencer is a post-doc in the Balskus group investigating glycyl radical enzymes of unknown function. For his Ph.D., he studied the mechanisms of enzymes in phosphonate metabolism with Prof. Wilfred van der Donk at the University of Illinois. When he's not in lab, he can often be found on his road bike. He also thinks it's weird to write in the third person.
Ph.D., University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Wilfred A. van der Donk Lab
