    (Initial work supported by an NYU Research Challenge award.)
  • Evolution of Rhabditidae:  tracing the evolution of male tail form, male copulatory behavior, and other aspects of rhabditid biology.
    (Initial work supported by an NYU Whitehead Fellowship.)
  • Male Tail Morphogenesis:  uncovering the genetic components and mechanisms controlling male tail tip morphogenesis in C. elegans.
    (Supported by NSF grant IBN-9506844.)
