I am a co-tutelle PhD candidate at the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and the Centre de Recherches Insulaires et Observatoire de l’Environnement. For my thesis, I am investigating the ecophysiology of global change for tropical sharks by testing hypotheses predicting species’ vulnerability to global change phenomena, including ocean warming, acidification, and deoxygenation.

I have been involved in shark research since 2008 and use a range of techniques belonging to the “Conservation Physiology Toolbox.” including respirometry and bio-logging. Before joining The Physioshark Project in 2016, my previous research focused on understanding the energetic costs, physiological stress, and behavioural responses of sharks to longline capture, including the implementation of bycatch devices.
