Overview

I am a comparative physiologist and my research uses multi-disciplinary approaches, from transcriptomics to social behaviour to global modelling, to provide a more holistic understanding of how animals deal with environmental change, with a particular focus upon aquatic animals (fish and invertebrates). This includes studies of how variability both natural and anthropogenic (e.g. climate change, aquaculture, pollution) impacts upon physiology and behaviour, but also the reverse process - how animal physiology can influence the global environment, for example how marine fish affect ocean biogeochemical cyles. I am Academic Lead for the 15 academics and their teams within the Environmental Biology research theme in Biosciences.

To help my university to address the declared climate and environment emergency I have committed to reduce my work based flights by at least 50% and I am working with my research group to reduce energy use in our offices and laboratories.

Research interests

My research area covers comparative and integrative physiology, specifically the mechanisms by which animals respond to environmental variation to maintain internal balance (homeostasis). In particular my focus is upon respiratory processes, ion, water and acid-base balance, waste excretion, and how the underlying mechanisms for each system are integrated with each other and with behaviour, and how they are disturbed under the influence of environmental deviations from the norm. I use fish and invertebrates as model organisms, and techniques ranging from molecular genetics to in vivo physiology, combined with behaviour in the lab and in the wild, and even modelling of how fish populations affect global biogeochemical cycles and ocean chemistry. My multi-disciplinary approach aims to provide a more holistic understanding of homeostasis in animals.

Research projects

My fundamental research centres on animal physiology, i.e. “how animals work”, from the molecular to the whole organism level, in aquatic animals, both fish and invertebrates. I study fundamental physiological processes because they are fascinating in themselves and tell us about how animals have evolved to thrive in very different, and often extreme, conditions. However, I also use this understanding of physiology to better understand environmental issues such as climate change, pollution, and global geochemical cylces, but also to help in optimising sustainable seafood production through aquaculture of fish and invertebrates (crustaceans, bivalves etc.), and even algae (seaweed and microalgae).  My current applied research can be roughtly divided into the following three areas.

 

1) The first area focuses upon how physiological processes and whole animal function are influenced by environmental change, often natural but also those linked to climate (temperature, CO2, O2, salinity) and anthropogenic contaminants (e.g. metals, nutrients, pharmaceuticals). This area is primarily funded through NERC, The Royal Society and AXA, and includes collaboration with Cefas, Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML), Universities of Swansea, Strathclyde, Faro (Portugal), and Scripps Institution of Oceanography (San Diego, USA).  Papers on this topic include publications in journals such as Nature Climate Change, Biology Letters and Scientific Reports.

 

2) The second area aligns with BBSRC’s strategic priority on food security and sustainable agriculture, and sits centrally within our Centre for Sustainable Aquaculture Futures (SAF) which is a collaboration between Exeter and Cefas. This includes collaboration with industrial aquaculture partners (e.g. Skretting, Cargill, Biomar, Ridley Aqua-Feed, Ocean Matters Ltd., Mowi, Cooke Aquaculture, Scottish Sea Farms, Scottish Salmon Company, Grieg Seafood, the National Lobster Hatchery, FloGro Systems, 360 Aquaculture, Rastech etc.). I use novel approaches based on my fundamental physiology research programme, including gut digestive physiology, and how water chemistry in aquaculture settings impacts physiological performance, health and disease resistance of fish and invertebrates. This approach can be used to optimise conditions and improve the efficiency of converting animal feed into growth. This objective has the double advantage of simultaneously improving the sustainability of aquaculture and reducing its environmental impact. This research is equally applicable to marine and freshwater aquaculture. Several current BBSRC, EU and Royal Society funded projects involve collaboration with the Institute of Aquaculture at Stirling University, the University of Aberdeen, The Roslyn Institute (Edinburgh), The National Lobster Hatchery, the Yellowseas Fisheries Research Institute (China), and work on species such as Atlantic salmon, lumpfish, European lobster, spiny lobster, mussels, European lobster, Carribean spiny lobster and whiteleg shrimp. In addition I have NC3Rs funding to investigate how water chemistry in the culture conditions of zebrafish (the 2nd most used vertebrate in research) influences their physiology, behaviour, and health and also the reproducibility of research studies. Papers on this topic include publications in journals such as Global Change Biology and Aquaculture. 

 

3) The third area turns around the viewpoint of animals being impacted by environmental change and instead examines how animals can influence the global environment, in this case fish playing a major role in the marine inorganic carbon cycle, carbonate sedimentology and the regulation of surface ocean chemistry (with papers in SciencePNAS, Limnology & Oceanography, and government policy-briefing reports for the IUCN, and funded largely by NERC). This work has major implications for our understanding of the factors regulating surface ocean chemistry and the absorption of atmospheric CO2, as well as for geology and the use of marine carbonates as proxies of paleo-climates. Several projects are producing outputs that will be used to re-evaluate carbon cycle models for the global oceans. This research area involves collaboration with multiple UK and international partners - UK (UEA, NOC-Southampton, Cefas), Germany, Belgium, Portugal, Gran Canaria, Israel, Saudi Arabia, USA.
