Research Interests

I am interested in environmental effects on organismal function and the consequences of physiological and evolutionary responses to global change. In the field and in the laboratory, my research explores organisms’ capacities to respond to their environments and physiological mechanisms underlying ecological patterns.

My graduate research work focused on the ecophysiology of algae and reproductive biology of reef-building corals. As a postdoctoral researcher, I worked on the effects of global change (temperature and ocean acidification) on the development of marine organisms. I am also interested in scientific communication, not just to transmit my discoveries to the scientific community but also to the local community so that my findings can be applied to conservation and resource management issues.
