Natali Delorme

Post-Doctoral Fellow - Shellfish Physiologist (Stress and Health)

Role at Cawthron

Natali is a post-doctoral fellow in the Aquaculture Group at Cawthron.  She is a passionate marine scientist working on physiology of marine invertebrates.  Currently, her research aims to understand stress, health and nutrition of different aquaculture species through the development of immunology assays and quantifying oxidative damage and antioxidant capacity. 

Her research has a strong commercial impact, trying to understand the animal’s biochemical, molecular and physiological responses thoughout the different aquaculture processes, and the mechanisms used to cope with such procedures.  Natali works closely with the industry to optimise current industry practices.
