I am interested in investigating the mechanisms of anthelmintic drug resistance in C. elegans and using comparative genetics to apply these findings to high-impact helminth species.

Kathryn

Kathryn Evans Graduate Student

kathrynevans2015@u.northwestern.edu

My research combines computational and experimental techniques to investigate the relationship between genetic variation and observed phenotypes, particularly the response to chemotherapeutic drugs.

Daehan

Daehan Lee Postdoctoral Researcher

daehan.lee@northwestern.edu

I'm interested in natural variation in dauer development and metabolite signaling.

Nicole

Nicole Roberto Research Technician

NicoleRoberto2018@u.northwestern.edu

I work on high-throughput culturing of wild strains for metabolite and RNA extractions.

Robyn

Robyn Tanny Research Associate

Robyn.Tanny@northwestern.edu

I manage the lab's strain collection, generate sequencing libraries, and manage CeNDR. I also handle incoming collection samples to identify new strains of C. elegans.

Ye

I am interested in how organisms perceive and respond to their environment. Specifically, how natural genetic and non-genetic factors contribute to variability in response to environmental cues.

Gaotian

Gaotian Zhang Postdoctoral Researcher

gaotian.zhang@northwestern.edu

I'm interested in natural variation in metabolism and bulk-segregant approaches.
