Shaolin Li M.Sc.

shaolin.li@mail.mcgill.ca

Shaolin joined the Roy lab as a Master student. After he finished his degree, he remained in the lab as a research assistant. He is particularly interested in how AMPK regulates L1 worm diapause, as well as new lab techniques to improve experimental efficiency.

Arindam Das

Ph.D. student
arindam.das@mail.mcgill.ca

Arindam was born in India and grew up in Kolkata. He did his B.Sc. in Zoology and M.Sc. in Environmental Studies. After working in Spain and United States as scientific researcher, he moved to Montreal. He is interested in photography, cooking (secretly), and sitting in front of a microscope. He is quite fond of coffee, good movies, and updated versions of DSLR camera. His project focuses on centriole elimination in differentiated cells in C. elegans.

Christopher Wong

M.Sc. student
christopher.wong8@mail.mcgill.ca

Christopher completed his B.Sc. in biochemistry at McGill University. He joined the Roy lab in January 2018 as an undergraduate student and is continuing his research as a Master's student. His project focuses on how the neurons regulate the germ line during the dauer stage in AMPK-deficient C. elegans.

McLean Sherrin

M.Sc. student
mclean.sherrin@mail.mcgill.ca

McLean completed his B.Sc. in Biochemistry at McGill University. He joined the Roy lab in September 2019 as a M.Sc. student. He is interested in how AMPK prevents genomic instability following starvation-induced L1 diapause and R-loop establishment and maintenance.

Sabih Rashid

Ph.D. student
sabih.rashid@mail.mcgill.ca

Sabih completed his Master’s degree in Biochemistry at McMaster University, studying the effects of human-derived microbiota on C. elegans development in Dr. Lesley MacNeil’s lab. He joined the Roy lab in September 2019 as a Ph.D. student. His project focuses on understanding how AMPK regulates small RNAs during the dauer stage. In particular, he is interested in how AMPK interacts with components of RNA interference pathways during the dauer stage, how changes in small RNA populations impact fertility and health in AMPK-deficient worms, and how these effects are transgenerationally inherited.
