Hi, welcome and thank you for visiting my site. I am passionate about coral reef ecosystems, their high biodiversity, incredible complexity, and natural beauty. The world-wide decline of these important systems is profoundly troubling and will have widespread ecological and economic ramifications. My research has focused on unraveling the responses of corals and reef biota to global change. I am particularly interested in the impacts of warming and ocean acidification on habitat structure and permanence, as shelter and food are central to the high biodiversity and biomass of these systems.
All the best,
