Areas of Interest

Cells are constantly exposed to various stressors, such as low oxygen and starvation. The inability to adapt to these conditions is linked to many diseases including cancer and diabetes. In order to survive, cells must mount specific responses for adaptation to occur. My research interests involve characterizing genetic pathways to determine how cells respond to these stressors. To study this, I utilize the nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans, a small and efficient genetic model organism with high homology to humans.
