Research Interests:

My research interest is focused on the neuropeptide signaling systems in echinoderms. We use the common starfish Asterias rubens as a model animal to investigate the evolution and physiological roles of neuropeptide signaling systems. My current project is to investigate the functions of Gonadotropin-releasing hormones (GnRH) and Thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) in starfish, which will give us a unique idea about the evolution of these two neuropeptides across the animal kingdom.
