PhD Candidate in Biology, McMaster University
I'm a comparative physiologist (zoologist) at McMaster University, studying how fish change their physiology to cope with low oxygen conditions. My expertise is in zoology, hypoxia tolerance, thermal tolerance, respiratory physiology, oxygen transport, metabolism, and oxidative stress.
