I’m a marine biologist who is interested in understanding how marine invertebrates can adapt to survive in a changing world. Both local and global shifts in climate are currently occurring, which have the potential to be of significant ecological consequence. I am currently working on a project examining how future climate change and ocean acidification will affect the eco-physiological thresholds of marine invertebrates across generations.
