My research goal is to increase our understanding of the mechanisms responsible for environmental adaptation of fishes to their surrounding environments. By using an integrative approach, information obtained at the cellular, protein, and genomic levels enables me to identify how temperature may direct or influence adaptation of poikilothermic organisms to different thermal regimes. I am most interested in identifying adaptive changes in cardiac and skeletal muscles that fine-tune an organism’s physiology, thus enabling them to be successful in an environment that may be inhospitable to other organisms. Currently, the two systems I study are the cold stenothermal notothenioids found in the Southern Ocean surrounding Antarctica, and temperate killifish (Fundulus sp.) that live in diverse habitats along the eastern coasts of North America.
