Dr. Komoroske’s research is driven by a fundamental curiosity in how animals are shaped by natural and anthropogenically altered environments, coupled with the desire to apply this knowledge to mitigate human impacts and inform effective conservation management. She conducts integrative studies in wildlife genomics, physiology and ecology to understand animal performance, distributions, connectivity and adaptation. Much of her research focuses on species of
conservation concern and economic value in marine and freshwater ecosystems, and generally falls under one or multiple of three broad research topics: 1) Global Change, 2) Conservation Management, 3) Ecological Adaptation.
