Skills


Epithelial ion transport

Investigation of transport of ions across epithelial membranes, focusing on the intestinal epithelium of aquatic organisms. Ions of particular interest are calcium (hard and soft water), and acid-base equivalents (H+, OH-).


Physiology of Aquatic Organisms

Experimentation using live aquatic organisms, both invertebrate and vertebrate, marine and freshwater. Investigations focus on ion transport physiology, nutrition, and energy usage.
