My lab is interested in how shifts in abiotic variables affect the performance of marine organisms, particularly within the scope of global climate change. Our work strives to characterize responses to the environment across levels of biological organization and elucidate differences that exist between populations or species in their capacity to respond to environmental change. Ultimately, this information is useful in developing predictions as to how organisms will fare in future environments.
