PhD Candidate in Climate Change Ecology and Evolution, Newcastle University

Liam Lachs is an ecologist researching the impact of climate change on coral reefs, mass coral bleaching and climate adaptation. His work spans the interface of evolutionary biology, climate science, demography, and coral reef ecology.
Throughout the last decade, this has included oceanographic analyses of deep-sea Irish coral ecosystems, isotopic assessments of sewage-derived impacts on coral reefs, manipulative field and lab experiments to quantify coral heat tolerance, and climate impact modelling. He has received various grants and awards to pursue his work on coral reef ecosystems, and has spent time bridging the gap between science and policy as an ambassador to the European Marine Board.
