Helping stressed amphibians
is my mission

About me

I am a biologist interested in (amphibian) physiology, endocrinology, and conservation. In particular, I investigate how global change might affect amphibian development, energy budgets, and survival. I am interested in how amphibians might cope with novel environments and challenges by exhibiting phenotypic plasticity.

In my research, I make use of various tools associated with conservation physiology such as measuring heart and metabolic rate, thermal tolerance and performance, acclimation capacity, body condition, and stress hormones. I am especially interested in endocrine disruptive effects of environmental stressors such as temperature variation and pollution. Thus, helping stressed amphibians is my mission.

In addition to my research, I am passionate about teaching students in the field of anatomy, physiology, ecology, and biostatistics at university. Proper academic education and supervision of students play an important role in my professional self-concept.
