Research interests

I am interested in evolutionary and physiological responses to environmental stressors.

For my undergraduate dissertation, I investigated the biochemical responses of algae to grazing pressure and how this related to grazing and predatory gastropod distribution on the rocky shore. My postgraduate thesis centred around modelling evolutionary dynamics using abundance data of fossilised foraminifera zooplankton, comparing environmental and competition drivers.

Currently, I am using a commercially important species of shrimp as a model organism to illustrate how environmental drivers shape populations. Using a combination of genetics, physiology and metabolomics, I am testing for evidence of local adaptation between two populations experiencing different oxygen regimes, and investigating their differing levels of physiological plasticity and the mechanisms behind any tolerance exhibited.
