Research interests

My research is driven by the biological flexibility of marine invertebrates from different biogeographic regions, with a focus on invertebrate reproduction and development.

Experienced in invertebrate ecology from the Polar regions, I use a range of seafloor invertebrates to investigate acclimation and resilience to environmental change over short and extended timescales. My past and ongoing research demonstrates the role of long-term multi-generation acclimation to warming in areas considered thermally stable, with implications for future survival.

As a polar benthic ecologist, my current research has investigated changes to physiological parameters in Arctic seafloor invertebrates to projected climate change. Using innovative technology and an inter-disciplinary fusion of expertise, my vision is to become a national strength for reproductive and larval ecology in aquatic invertebrates.
