My research interests are broad based covering elements of the behaviour, physiology, ecology and biogeography of marine invertebrates. Although presently located in the tropics, for more than a decade I worked on Antarctic arthropods (terrestrial). Present marine projects concern benthic population and community responses to environmental change (warming, acidification and pollution). I have a special interest in the ecological and evolutionary physiology and behaviour of gastropods. This work explores the relevance and applicability of intertidal snails to mainstream theories for thermal adaptation and climate warming, which are largely based on terrestrial ectothermic animals.
