I am interested in organisms that live in extreme environments and their strategies for tolerating environmental stress. My favorite extreme habitat is the intertidal zone where organisms are both marine and terrestrial in the course of a single day. My research addresses invertebrate behavioral and physiological adaptations to temperature and pH stress and predictions of the effects of climate change, including population/community level implications of organismal stress.
