Research Interests

​The physiological state of a cell often translates into tissue level and organismal level effects.  The physiological state of a cell can be related to current environmental conditions and past evolutionary constraints.  Using invertebrate models, I investigate the physiological state of the cell as an indication of environmental conditions and how this physiological state is connected to cell and tissue behavior, and thus, the growth, development, and reproduction of the organism.  These investigations are examined in the context of the evolutionary history of these systems.
