Karolina Zarzyczny

PhD Candidate, Marine Tropicalisation, University of Southampton

I am a PhD student at the National Oceanography Centre (University of Southampton), using traditional surveys and molecular techniques to document how coastal species change their distributions in response to climate change, and how that impacts them on the ecological and genetic levels.

My research interests range from changes in global biodiversity patterns, through to ecosystem and population level changes. My Master’s dissertation at the University of Leeds focused on herbivory across subtropical and tropical coral reefs. Aside from my passion for research, I am also interested in sustainability and education.
