Graduate advisor:   Dr. Alison Bell, Animal Biology


My PhD research is focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms of why animals behave differently from each other. It is more about understanding animal personalities.

I am conducting my research in Alison Bell’s lab in department of Integrative Biology. We are using transcriptomics and bioinformatics approaches e.g. RNA sequencing and microarray to unveil the link between genes and behavior.
