My doctoral research in the Wright Lab focuses on understanding how amphibious fishes acclimate to two vastly different environments – land and water – using the same suite of structural and physiological traits. I am currently investigating the role of skeletal muscle remodeling in improving the locomotor performance of amphibious fishes in both aquatic and terrestrial settings. I am particularly excited about the link between skeletal muscle phenotype and metabolism, the cues for muscle remodeling when fish are out of water, and the mechanisms through which remodeling occurs.
