Inna of Sokolova is Professor and and Vice-Chair of Research at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Department of Biology. Her researchfocuses on understanding the effects of multiple environmental stressors (including global climate change, ocean acidification and pollution) on marine organisms. Her research integrates biological responses at different levels of organization from molecular and cellular to the whole-organism and population in order to identify the physiological and molecular mechanisms of the multiple stress effects and to predict their consequences for an organisms fitness and the survival of the population. She is also interested in the studies of energy metabolism as a central integrator of physiological responses to multiple stressors and explores the role of bioenergetics in setting limits to environmental stress tolerance in marine organisms. Her research is supported by the NSF, US Civilian Research and Development Foundation and North Carolina Sea Grant. Also she holds as Contributing Editor for Marine Ecology Progress Series, as Member of Editorial Board for Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology and as Member of the Review Editorial Board for Frontiers in Aquatic Physiology.
