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 the 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 Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, USA.

If you are interested in joining the lab, please read the Join the Team section and contact Dr. Di Santo at valentina.disanto (at)
