About Shaw

I am a marine biologist and have worked at the International Research Institute of Stavanger (IRIS) for thirteen years. My main research interest is investigating effects of environmental changes on the physiology and behaviour of marine invertebrates. I have worked primarily with decapod crustaceans and bivalve molluscs, examining, for example, cardiac performance, immune function, valve gaping behaviour and expression of endogenous rhythms. A key component of this work is the development of methods that produce results readily interpreted within an ecological context. I am also involved in the development of flow cytometry techniques to measure blood cell parameters in samples taken from blue mussels. I have recently led projects tasked with developing monitoring techniques to detect oil discharges at sea, together with an investigation into potential environmental impacts arising from leakage of carbon dioxide from sub-sea storage. I am currently working on a project that aims to use the natural behaviour of salmon lice larvae to control their numbers within salmon farm cages.
