Former graduate students and postdocs:

Rosalind Murray
MSc (2009)

Ros studied C. elegans sperm-related evolution in her MSc thesis. She is now pursuing a PhD at the University of Sterling with Luc Bussiere.

Joanna Kozlowska
MSc (2011)

Joanna studied the genetics of reproductive isolation between Caenorhabditis species in her MSc thesis. She is now a high school science teacher.

Deepthi Rajagopalan
MSc (2012)

Deepthi studied the evolution of sex-biased genes in Caenorhabditis in her MSc thesis, using next-gen transcriptome sequencing. She is now working as a bioinformatician at SickKids Hospital.
