Research Interests

I am a geneticist who uses the free-living nematode Caenorhabditis elegans  to study various elements of oxidative stress, DNA repair and radiation sensitivity.  In collaboration with my longstanding collaborator Dr. Naoaki Ishii, I have particularly focused on the genetics of free radical generation in mitochondria and their resultant molecular, cellular, and organismal effects.

Teaching Responsibilities

I do not currently teach regularly in the department but give occasional lectures and laboratories in courses such as genetics and developmental biology.
