Benthic organisms play a crucial role in coastal ecosystems as they significantly contribute to the deposit environment through various physical and chemical pathways. However, global climate change poses a widespread threat to the well-being of these organisms in coastal ecosystems. 

I’m interested in studying how do benthic organisms (benthos) respond to climate change-driven and extreme events through a thorough assessment of their behavioral movement, physiological adjustment and capacity, as well as their ecological functional changes. Assessing these traits allows us to better understand their adaptive capacity to the ever-changing environments. This could help to further understand and predict whether extreme weather events have transgenerational impacts on the population dynamics of key benthic species.
