Research Description

I'm interested in developmental adaptations to stress in the free-living nematode, C. elegans. My work focuses on molecular mechanisms enabling rapid, large scale extension of the neuronal receptive field and the corresponding inherent plasticity of the cell to recover from periods of stress.
