Research Interests
Amy Moran is a marine biologist with expertise in the physiology, ecology, and evolution of marine invertebrates. Her work focuses on the responses of eggs, embryos and larvae to environmental oxygen, temperature, and food levels in a global change context. In the Antarctic, Amy’s research investigates the roles of temperature and oxygen in polar gigantism, and the effects of small shifts in temperature and oxygen on embryonic development and energetics.
