Integrative Biology

Marine and freshwater environments are rapidly changing and impacting the survival of fishes worldwide. Our studies seek to understand the capacity of both temperate and polar fishes to endure a changing climate. We study the interrelationship between the environment and phenotypic plasticity at all levels of biological organization - from the molecular level, studying the signaling pathways mediating responses to stress, to the organismal level, investigating the effects of abiotic factors on metabolic rate.
