ResearchGate: Olga Kotenko

Current position:

Lecturer at the Dept. of Invertebrate Zoology, St.-Petersburg State University.

Scientific interests:

Comparative embryology and development of marine invertebrates; larval morphology; evolution of development and origin of novel body plans, evolution and systematics of bryozoans; invertebrates of the White Sea.

Current research:

Early development, larval structure and metamorphosis and their evolution within Gymnolaemata (Bryozoa).
Opportunities for Students: If you are an undergraduate student interested in doing a research project at the Department of Invertebrate Zoology I am looking for more hands to help with early bryozoan development and metamorphosis. If it sounds interesting enough to you, please get in touch with me by email.
