Phenotypic plasticity and aging in a changing world

My research focuses on the impact of climate change on marine organisms with connections to phenotypic plasticity and ageing. Using meta-analyses and secondary synthesis, my PhD will examine how phenotypic plasticity may influence organisms’ responses to climate change, and in turn, how climate change may influence an organism’s plasticity.
