Stress Responses of Marine Organisms

Our research utilizes biochemical, cellular and ecological approaches to better understand the stress responses of marine and freshwater photosynthetic organisms. Studying the stress pathways that regulate biotic interactions is important for discerning not only how aquatic organisms adapt to their environment, but how aquatic organisms respond to each other. We are particularly interested in evaluating the impacts of environmental stressors on cellular processes with the ultimate goal of understanding how this influences ecosystem functionality. Building an integrated understanding of how events at the cellular level can impact a species' ecology is important for our ability to predict the impacts of both regional and global scale climate change.
