Shah Premal II

Professor Premal Shah is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Genetics. His lab is focused on understanding the dynamics and evolution of how proteins are produced within cells. His lab uses high-throughput genomic methods, single-molecule microscopy, computer simulations, and quantitative modeling to understand fundamental processes taking place inside cells. Prior to joining Rutgers, he received his undergraduate degree in Biotechnology from Anna University in India, and his Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from University of Tennessee, Knoxville, advised by Dr. Michael Gilchrist. During this time, he built models to understand the evolution of codon usage patterns. He later did a postdoc with Dr. Joshua Plotkin at University of Pennsylvania, where he worked on whole-cell models of protein translation, the role of epistasis in protein evolution, built codon substitution models, and developed methods for identifying rate variation in phylogenetic trees.
