Research interests

I research Coral reef ecology and Molecular Biology. My current project is 'Acclimation potential of shallow corals to the mesophotic environment' My longer-term goals will be focused on the thermal tolerance of mesophotic coral species, evolutionary biology studies on mesophotic coral reef ecosystems, and modeling​.


  Please note that only publications relevant to mesophotic reefs are indexed.
