Research Fellow, ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, James Cook University

I am a research fellow studying coral holobiont response to early thermal stress events, coral host-microbe interactions and coral symbioses in diverse environments. My research aims to determine how host-microbe interactions influence organism physiology, adaptation and acclimation. I have been a research fellow (APD 2008- 2011, Super Science 2011 – 2014) in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reefs Studies since 2008. Prior my postdoctoral research, I received a PhD at the University of Queensland (Links between stress and disease in coral), a Master of Science (Immunological markers in cultured penaeids) and a Bachelor of Science (Aquaculture and Marine Biology), from James Cook University.
