Research interests

My fundamental research interest is how organisms survive at the margins of their distributions, and how these mechanisms may be critical for the survival of organisms under future climate conditions. This makes mesophotic coral reefs an ideal system for my research. I am currently examining the impact of disease on shallow and mesophotic reefs for my dissertation in the Seascape Ecology Lab.


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