More on research
Delamere has studied the solar wind interaction with the giant magnetospheres of Jupiter and Saturn, comets, Pluto, and the plasma interaction at Io.…
Expertise: population and evolutionary ecology of plant-insect interactions; the impact of patchy or fragmented habitat structure on population level processes; how detailed examination of individual behavior can be used to scale up to explanations of population level processes.…
Expertise: hibernation biology; mechanisms of intrinsic neuroprotective properties of Arctic ground squirrel brain in the hibernating and euthermic state; mechanisms and cognitive significance of synaptic remodeling observed during hibernation torpor and arousal; central nervous system regulation of metabolic suppression in hibernation
Expertise: coevolutionary interactions, particularly host-parasite interactions. My research team uses a combination of mathematical modeling and molecular analysis in both field and laboratory settings to address how species interactions influence life history trait evolution, such as dispersal and virulence.
Expertise: how the central nervous system protects itself from these contaminants
Expertise: developing health relevant research models that incorporate the nutritive properties of indigenous foods and the molecular basis by which they combat age and diet related diseases
