Welcome to The Di Santo Lab!

In the Di Santo Lab we explore how abiotic factors alter the performance, behavior, and morphology of fishes. Most of our work focuses on the effect of climate change stressors, such as ocean warming, acidification and hypoxia on physiology and biomechanics of fish locomotion, including swimming, walking and schooling behavior. We also collaborate with engineers to develop bio-inspired underwater robots. Our main lab is located at Stockholm University, but we also conduct work at the Tovetorp Zoological Research Station in Björnlunda, about 80 Km southwest of Stockholm.
