About Ashley Stoehr

Ashley Stoehr, Ph.D. is a Lecturer of Biology at Scared Heart University. Ashley's areas of expertise include marine and evolutionary biology. She is also skilled in curriculum development and laboratory instruction. Her research currently focuses on on the eco-physiology of high performance fishes such as tunas and how temperature may affect muscular, cardiovascular, or respiratory functions, and drive migratory patterns. Her doctoral research compares species and uses a combination of techniques including, temperature telemetry, muscle work-loops, and enzyme assays to assess if any characteristics or abilities facilitate sustained swimming capacity and allow thermal niche expansion in swordfish. Ashley has also received many honors such as National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship and Distinguished Doctoral Fellow.
