My PhD research investigates the interactions and exchange of the three respiratory gases, CO2, O2, and NH3 in the gastrointestinal tract and cardiorespiratory system in teleost. My research background includes, but not limited to, sublethal effects of temperature and oxygen, particularly with respect to climate change, and its effect on various steps of the metabolism in teleost.
