Personal Statement

I am a Zoologist by training, with particular interests in aquatic ecology, physiology, and phenotypic plasticity. My research combines meta-analysis and experimentation to investigate the effects of warming on aquatic organisms. The work forms part of a NERC-funded project (CLIMSHIFT) that aims to quantify, understand, predict, and develop mitigation strategies to deal with warming and oxygen-induced changes in body size in aquatic ecosystems. My former research experience includes the assessment of juvenile hard coral recruitment and recovery in the Seychelles, and the monitoring and conservation of sea turtles in the Mediterranean.
