Juhi Samal, PhD

Tenure-track assistant professor (Associate scientist at Comprehensive Neuroscience Center) in Dept. of Biomedical Engineering @ University of Alabama at Birmingham

Juhi joined the Segura Lab in December 2019 after completing her graduate research at National University of Ireland, Galway under the supervision of Dr. Abhay Pandit. She worked on establishing glycosylation investigating platforms for stroke brain in the Segura Lab in collaboration with Dr. Muddiman’s lab at NCSU.

Juhi has had many years with Tatiana, so she knows what she’s talking about with this retrospective advice to current students:  Mentoring is a two-way street, and Tatiana is a great mentor. Understand what you want to achieve in a mentoring relationship with her. She will be your biggest cheerleader! And during grad school, ask and appreciate as many questions as you can get in lab meetings or during your talks – everyone is better for it.
