Cheryl Logan: Assistant Professor, School of Natural Sciences
I am an assistant professor in the Division of Science and Environmental Policy (SEP) at Cal State Monterey Bay. My research lab focuses on the physiological mechanisms that marine animals use to survive in their environments, from the biochemical to the whole organismal level. In the face of climate change, understanding the mechanistic basis for why species ranges are shifting is fundamental to predicting which species will be the “winners” and “losers” in our changing environment. We study how ecologically important fish and invertebrate species regulate their physiology in response to temperature, hypoxia and ocean acidification associated with climate change.
