Erik Andersen Principal Investigator

Curriculum Vitae


Claire Buchanan Research Technician

I work on collecting and isolating wild Caenorhabditis strains.


Tim Crombie Postdoctoral Researcher

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


Clay Dilks Graduate Student

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 Evans Postdoctoral Researcher

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


Sophie Gibson Research technician

I work molecular biology, injections, and wild Caenorhabditis strains.


Dan Lu Staff Bioinformaticist

I work on computational pipelines and CeNDR.


Nicolas Moya Graduate Student

I am interested in genome assembly and de novo gene models.


Joy Nyaanga Graduate Student

I am interested in quantitative methods to understand growth and metabolic networks.


Nicole Roberto Research Technician

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


Loraina Stinson Graduate Student

I am interested in understanding the mechanisms of behavioral variation across Caenorhabditis species.


Robyn Tanny Research Assistant Professor

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.


Sam Widmayer Postdoctoral Researcher

I am interested in toxin-response variation and optimizing new mapping methods.


Janneke Wit Postdoctoral Researcher

I am interested in natural anthelmintic resistance.


Gaotian Zhang Postdoctoral Researcher

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