Current Research Interests

I am a marine invertebrate physiologist.  That means I study the squishy animals in the ocean and explore how they survive.  Most of my work examines how organisms handle changing or extreme environments.  Presently I examining hypoxia (low oxygen) and hypercapnia (elevated CO2) tolerance in octopus.  I am also studying the metabolism and hypercapnia tolerance of a group of pelagic tunicates called Salps.  These projects aim to help elucidate the impact global warming and specifically ocean acidification will have on the marine environment.
