Acute effects of environmental stress on metabolic rate
I seek to understand functional linkages between whole organism metabolic rate and underlying mechanisms that influence its magnitude. I have looked at evolutionary changes in metabolic rates in primary fibroblast cells from tropical and temperate birds, developmental changes in cellular metabolic rates of muscle fibers, and currently I am looking at acute changes in metabolic rate due to environmental stress.
