Erik Andersen Principal Investigator

Curriculum Vitae


Shannon Brady Graduate Student

I am interested in the genotypic factors that contribute to drug sensitivity, especially in regards to chemotherapeutics.


Daniel Cook Graduate Student

I am interested in characterizing genetic variation in the C. elegans species and building tools to facilitate studies connecting genetic differences with phenotypes.


Tim Crombie Postdoctoral Researcher

I'm interested in natural variation in stress responses and GxE interactions.


Kathryn Evans Graduate Student

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


Steffen Hahnel Postdoctoral Researcher

I'm interested in natural variation in anthelmintic drug responses.


Daehan Lee Postdoctoral Researcher

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


Briana Rodriguez Research Associate

I manage the work-study students and perform high-throughput fitness assays.


Robyn Tanny Research Associate

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.


Stefan Zdraljevic Graduate Student

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.
