  • Biography
    I work on the ciliate Tetrahymena thermophila, with interests in chemical sensing and responses to hypoxia and oxidative stress. I am particularly interested in the possible role of ion channels in avoidance behaviors, as well as the effects of low oxygen on a biochemical pathway known as the glyoxylate cycle. I also teach a stand-alone laboratory course (Experimental Cell Biology) in with I have students work with Tetrahymena and other protists, such as Chlamydomonas and Dictyostelium.
