I am a postdoctoral researcher within the Centre for Sustainable Aquatic Research (CSAR), having previously completed my PhD in molecular ecotoxicology from the University of Exeter in 2014.
My research interests broadly focus on the impacts of environmental stressors on animal and ecosystem health. I specialise in using genomics-based tools to elucidate mechanisms of adverse effect, and also to establish whether, and how, organisms can develop tolerance of such stressors.
