About Me

Hey, My name is Ross and I am studying the effects of climate change on crustacean species.

My research looks at how climate change may effects crustacean species learning and there behaviour. To do this I plan to see if a crab has the intelligence to learn how to use an underwater maze under current pH level sea water. The maze is of my own design and was built right here on campus. I then plan to see if this same effect can be repeated using sea water that has been affected by climate change based on estimates for pH levels at 2050.

Outside of research I am a keen lacrosse player, SCUBA diver and can even drive a boat.
