My current research involves identifying the tissue-specific transcriptional profiles underlying aging and complex behaviors.
My research focus is to identify new regulators of the Insulin/IGF-1 signaling pathway and to characterize their functions in development, metabolism and age-related processes.
I am interested in identifying conserved regulators of learning and memory and molecules involved in cognitive decline with age.
My research interests lie in the field of neuronal development and plasticity. I have investigated how brain circuits form during development and am examining how neuronal function declines with age.
Characterizing molecular pathways and underlying mechanisms that contribute to the regulation of reproductive aging.
Mechanisms of (1) reproductive aging, (2) behavioral and physiological post-mating changes, (3) interplay between the sexes
I am interested in how mating and pheromones affect lifespan and behavior.
My research aims to elucidate the contribution of insulin signaling to the innate immune response.
I’m currently researching a human homolog for PQM-1, a transcription factor recently discovered by our lab. PQM-1 is responsible for growth, development, and reproduction.
My research is mainly focused on the regulators of reproductive longevity, regarding both novel genes and relation to known pathways.
Even within an isogenic population of worms, there is stochastic variation in learning and memory behavior. I am interested identifying mechanisms for short term associative memory stochastic variation.
I am currently researching sensory mutations increase genetic diversity in the worm population because they cannot properly sense their food/environment.
I'm characterizing a downstream target of the FOXO family transcription factor, DAF-16.
My current research relates to defects in IFT that contribute to ciliopathies.
