After studying ecology as a biology major at Swarthmore College, I learned fly pushing as a technician for Steve DiNardo and then discovered evolutionary genetics as a tech for Paul Schmidt. I joined Paul’s lab as a graduate student and earned my PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in 2009. In 2015 I completed my postdoctoral training with Matt Rockman at New York University and began my appointment at Georgia Tech.

Han Ting began her career as a pianist and was a tenured professor of music in Argentina before she turned to science. She worked as a biology researcher for six years at National Tawain University, then earned her PhD in 2011 studying Pseudomonas in the lab of Chung-Dar Lu at Georgia State. She began working with worms as a postdoc with Casonya Johnson at GSU, and is now using high throughput microscopy methods to capture cellular phenotypes, including those associated with variability in germline RNAi.

Samiksha became interested in evolution and quantitative genetics while working as an undergrad in Ian Dworkin's lab at McMaster University. After graduating with honors and a degree in molecular biology and genetics in 2016, she joined the Paaby lab and made the jump from flies to worms. She is investigating the functional and evolutionary consequences of variation in the early embryo.
