I am interested in how physiological functions of ectothermic animals are impacted by alterations in temperature. Specifically, my work is focused on how the biological membranes of such organisms maintain both fluidity and integrity in the face of thermal change. My research has led me across the world to the Antarctic Peninsula, where I study extreme cold-adapted Antarctic notothenioid fishes and the properties of their biological membranes.

Largely, our group's aim is to characterize the physiological basis of thermal tolerance in these remarkable organisms and to predict how the Antarctic notothenioids will fare in waters that are now among the most rapidly warming on the planet.
