I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Manitoba, where I study the energy metabolism and stress physiology of ancient fishes to inform their conservation.

My research focuses on the effects of anthropogenic stressors and environmental change on aquatic organisms, with specific interest in defining fundamental physiological mechanisms that underpin conservation issues in imperiled taxa. Specifically, I am interested in novel mechanisms underlying (1) aquatic species’ tolerance of extreme climate-driven conditions, (2) physiological responses in threatened species following interactions with fisheries, and (3) the molecular and endocrine stress response in phylogenetically ancient vertebrates.
