University of Technology
I am a marine biologist with research interests in the role marginal reef environments (e.g. mangrove habitats) can play in understanding the impact of future climate change on coral reefs. I currently work as a post-doctorate research associate at the University of Technology (UTS), Sydney. At UTS I am a member of the Climate Change Cluster (C3) working with Associate Professor David Suggett in the Future Reefs Research Program.
Over the past four years I have been involved as a coral reef researcher with Earthwatch and Operation Wallacea and am an ambassador for global biodiversity for the charity IBEX earth. Before my current position at UTS I was awarded an Australian Government Endeavour Fellowship to continue my work on marginal corals - specifically addressing whether and how species diversity of the coral holobiont (hostcoral cnidarian, symbiotic algal and bacterial communities) alters as coral populations persist into extreme environments.
Alongside my research, I enjoy photography and communicating my research to the wider public.
