Zachary McDargh


Zach McDargh is a postdoctoral researcher in the group, who joined in fall 2017. During his doctoral work in the Physics department at Carnegie Mellon University, he studied dynamin-mediated endocytosis and membrane mechanics. This work primarily aimed toward the goal of understanding how dynamin induces membrane fission from a mechanical and geometric perspective using analytical and computational models. Currently, he works on neurotransmission, membrane fusion, and cytokinesis. Outside of the office, Zach enjoys rock climbing, hiking, and exploring New York.
