I am a graduate student investigating the the capacity for juvenile sharks to balance processes related to energy expenditure and acquisition while managing stressors across a range of environmental conditions in nursery habitat around Moorea, French Polynesia. Follow the shark action in Moorea via #physioshark!

My previous research into the conservation physiology of fishes has focused on understanding the energetic costs, physiological stress, and behavioral responses of sharks to capture, including the implementation of bycatch reduction devices.
