I am a community and conservation ecologist studying the impacts of multiple stressors on coral reefs. My research is motivated to ask applied questions that are directly relevant to conservation and management. This had led me to investigate new methods to assess coral life-history strategies, the resilience of coral communities to climate change, and the impacts of marine reserves on food security and socio-economic vulnerability. I am also interested in the role of social media and Twitter for developing new scientific ideas and collaborations.
