Animal Biology

Thermobiology Group convenor

Holly is a Senior Lecturer in Animal Physiology at the University of Manchester. Her research focus is cardiac physiology in ectotherms. Environmental changes, such as temperature, oxygen and carbon dioxide fluctuations, dramatically affect the ability of the heart to maintain normal function. And yet many ectothermic animals experience these changes during their life. Her group explores strategies of cardiac adaptation that permit maintenance of heart function in animals living in fluctuating environments.
