Daniel is a PhD candidate at the University of Queensland, Australia. Daniel is interested in understanding how organisms are affected by changes in their environment. His current research examines how Australian fishes are affected by human-induced environmental change. Daniel’s research aims to highlight the need to consider and quantify the effects of stressors interactions on fish functional performance, behaviour and survival in order to make ecologically informed management decision.

Research interests

Daniel’s Ph.D. research focuses on understanding how environmental stressors (e.g. nitrate, low pH, temperature) interact to affect the functional performance and survival of organisms living in rapidly changing environments. Daniel is particularly interested in:

  • Environmental stressors and Global Change
  • Conservation Physiology
  • Physiological Ecology
  • Environmental adaptation/acclimation
  • Thermal Biology

Awards & achievements
