Javier Rodriguez-Casariego, Ph.D. Student

I completed my Bachelors and Master degree in Marine Biology at the University of Havana (Cuba). In 2012 I joined the Ecotoxicology and Risk Assessment Lab at FIU, integrating ecological, physiological and molecular data to study organism’s responses to environmental stress. In 2016 I joined the EELab as a Ph.D. student, studying how epigenetic mechanisms modulate responses to environmental stress in “key marine organisms” – those capable of creating and maintaining ecosystems – which are critically impacted by global climate change.
