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 Postdoctoral Researcher

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 toxins and heavy metals.
