Emeritus professor of animal physiology
BiographyMy main research interest is on thermal adaptation and energetics in endotherms (birds, mammals). Focus areas include metabolic physiology of small passerines in winter, muscle thermogenesis and also, through collaboration, energetics of genetically modified mouse disease-models.
