In my research, I focus on understanding the physiological and biochemical responses of jellyfish to selected climate change-driven changes in environmental factors (i.e., temperature and UV light). Furthermore, the effect of oil pollution in Red Sea on jellyfish physiology is to be investigated as well.
My research aims at characterizing the underlying mechanisms of jellyfish’s proposed robustness to changing environmental factors. The results of my research provide a framework for understanding the physiological tolerance of jellyfish under possible future climate changes.
