About Luke P. Miller

My research explores how organisms living in a highly variable environment, the rocky intertidal zone, cope with physical and physiological stress. I am interested in species' responses to thermal stress, wave stress, desiccation stress, and climate change, and how organisms’ behavioral and morphological traits allow them to mitigate potential environmental stresses. Much of my research involves the development of custom electronic sensors to track environmental conditions and the status of organisms.
