2009-12 ARCS Scholar Hilary Hayford - KristinZwiersPhoto-0620


I am a coastal marine ecologist with passion for natural history, ecophysiology, and educational equity. My work explores the effects of climate change and the impacts of conservation efforts on nearshore species: thermal stress, ocean acidification, and factors shaping organismal tolerance.

I am interested in the behavioral and physiological strategies for survival employed by animals in extreme environments. The intertidal zone and other nearshore habitats are ideal for the study of global change because these organisms are subjected to rapidly changing marine and terrestrial environments. I combine manipulative field ecology, observational surveys, measurement of environmental variables, physiological assays, and new technological tools.
