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.

 
Mark Lojacono
MSc (2013)

Mark studied the genetics of fecundity variation in C. briggsae in his MSc thesis. He is now a high school science teacher.

 
Alivia Dey
PhD (2013)

Alivia's PhD thesis investigated the molecular population genetics and species divergence of obligatorily outbreeding Caenorhabditis. She is now a postdoc with Amro Zayed at York University.

 
Stephanie Mark
MSc (2016)

Stephanie's bioinformatics MSc thesis quantified differential expression of the C. briggsae transcriptome as a function of genotype and environmental rearing temperature. She is now in a bioinformatics internship at the Ontario Brain Institute.

 
Gregory Stegeman
PhD (2017)

Greg's PhD thesis investigated the genetics of temperature-dependent nematode behavior, primarily in C. briggsae. Greg was co-advised by Will Ryu (Physics).

 
Joanna Bundus
PhD (2017)

Joanna's PhD thesis investigated the genetics of reproductive isolation in Caenorhabditis. She is now a postdoc with Scott Rifkin at UCSD.


Janice Ting
PhD (2018)

Janice's PhD thesis investigated gametic reproductive isolation in Caenorhabditis


 
Cristel Thomas
Postdoc (2012-2013)

Cristel studied population genomics and genome evolution.

 
Jeremy Gray
Postdoc (2012-2015)

Jeremy studied speciation and trait mapping.

Richard Jovelin
Postdoc (2010-2015)

Richard studied molecular population genetics and genome evolution.

 

So many amazing former undergraduates, techs and visiting scientists!
