Michael Romero, Ph.D., is a professor of biology in the School of Arts and Sciences at Tufts University. Romero and his lab take an interdisciplinary approach to the study of vertebrate stress response. Using laboratory and field studies, they combine areas of physiology, ecology, and neuroscience, all with the goal of increasing our comprehension of the causes and effects of stress.
Dr. Romero can speak about:
- Stress in wild animals
- Human impacts on wild animals
- How stress helps wild animals survive when threatened by stressful stimuli such as predators, storms, or anthropogenic changes
