Specialties

  • Ecological Physiology
  • Global Change Biology
  • Remote Sensors
  • Invasive Biology/Ecology
  • Organism – environment interactions: response of species to ocean change e.g. ocean acidification, increased temperature
  • Cellular and organismal physiology
  • Transcriptomics
  • Coastal ecological processes

 

Research Overview

My research focuses on organism-environment interactions in coastal marine ecosystems using time-series observational data combined with field and laboratory experiments to predict the response of species to ocean change.

 

Current Research Projects

  • Currently, my research investigates the transcriptomic response of Antarctic sea urchin larvae to the individual and interacting conditions of future ocean change- including ocean acidification and increased temperature.
