I am interested in understanding how marine invertebrates respond to environmental changes. My PhD project aims to:
1) Assess the acclimation capacity of physiological and life history traits to a range of environmental conditions on commercially important molluscs.
2) Characterize the importance of developmental and/or transgenerational plasticity for performance and stress tolerance.
3) Evaluate the role of within- and across- generation acclimation in stock enhancement within an aquaculture context.
