The reseach in my group is focusing mostly on cardiovascular functions, metabolic rate and thermal and hypoxia tolerance of fishes and other aquatic animals from molecular to functional level. We are studying how animals can respond to different environmental challenges including climate change, hypoxia, toxins and their interactions. These challenges are especially important in Baltic Sea area where most of our research is done. We are, however, also interested about cardiovascular functions of mammals and how they can respond to challenges like cancer, diabetes and ageing.
