Research Interest

EcoPhysiological Proteomics of aquatic animals.

Effects of climate change-related environmental stress (salinity, temperature) on aquatic organisms (euryhaline fish, invertebrates).

 Evolution of biochemical mechanisms that confer tolerance towards environmental stress (salinity, temperature, pollution) in aquatic animals.

 Mechanistic links between molecular (proteomic) and emergent higher-order (physiology, behaviors) phenotypes that are associated with environmental stress responses of aquatic animals.
