Haiyang Feng

Postdoctoral Scientist

I’m currently working on developing genetic manipulation tools in the monogonont rotifer. My general research interests are cell cycle regulation, developmental and cell biology, and invertebrates evolution.

Sovannarith Korm

Postdoctoral Scientist

I am interested in using different animal models to understand human diseases in hopes of discovering cures. I am currently using marine invertebrate rotifers combined with cellular, biochemical, and microscopic approaches to study the maternal age effects on offspring healthspan and lifespan.

Alyssa Liguori

Postdoctoral Scientist

I’m interested in understanding the mechanisms of acclimation and adaptation to rapidly changing environments in marine invertebrate populations. In the Gribble Lab, I am using experimental, genetic, and bioinformatic approaches to determine the mechanisms of transgenerational epigenetic inheritance in rotifers.

Kate Allcock

Research Assistant

My thesis in graduate school studied the spatiotemporal variation in patterns of genetic diversity, structure, and life history across Zostera marina meadows in North Carolina. I currently work at the Marine Biological Laboratory as a Research Assistant, where I apply this knowledge of population genetics to explore the biology of aging, maternal effects, life history, evolution, and ecology using rotifers as a model system.
