Main Research Interests

My main research interests focus on the interaction between the environment and genes, namely in genes involved in stress responses in non-model species. Particularly, I am interested in understand the mechanisms by which freshwater fish deal with high temperatures and hypoxia, which ultimately will help predicting the consequences of climate change for these animals.
