My Ph.D. dissertation is focused on environmental epigenetics of marine megafauna which includes mostly sharks and dolphins. More specifically, I am interested in using epigenetics as a tool for acquiring ecologically important information such as age and sex, finding biomarkers of exposure to stressors (such as pollutants), and also studying how epigenetics contributes to acclimatization and adaptation to stressors in the environment.
