Research Summary: 

Animals are in constant and intimate interaction with the environment. When conditions change, animals must mount a coordinated physiological response to maintain homeostasis and survive. My lab investigates how changes in external conditions are integrated into physiological function. We use C. elegans to investigate responses to biologically active small gas molecules oxygen and hydrogen sulfide (and how they interact) using genetic and biochemical approaches.

Short Research Description: 
Responses to hydrogen sulfide and hypoxia
Areas of Interest: 
Cell Signaling & Cell/Environment Interactions
Developmental Biology, Stem Cells & Aging
Genetics, Genomics & Evolution
