    Personality & Stress Coping Styles

    My research interests focus on the behaviour and physiology of aquatic animals and how they respond to environmental challenges. Specifically I’m interested in coping styles, the interplay of stress physiology and personality, and the exogenous and endogenous drivers of intraspecific variation in behaviour. I've previously worked on fish but my current research focuses on intertidal organisms since littoral habitats provide an interesting environmental gradient and an often diverse community to explore.
