PhD thesis title: Ecophysiology of limpets on New Zealand rocky shores.

Research Interests

My general research interests are broad, but I am most passionate about marine invertebrates, especially intertidal molluscs. My doctoral research focuses on understanding the physiological responses of intertidal limpets to thermal stress, and trying to determine if we can use these data to predict local (i.e., site level) limpet distributions.
