Shawna Foo is a marine scientist interested in the evolution and ecology of marine ecosystems in a changing climate. Her research began with a focus on the adaptive potential of sea urchins to ocean warming and ocean acidification, with a comparison of species from the poles to the tropics. She also uses natural seawater carbon dioxide vents as windows into the future for studying the effects of ocean acidification and how species might adapt to survive harsh environments. Most recently, her work aims to integrate satellite based coral mapping with benthic surveys to allow an upscaling of reef monitoring in the context of resilience and recovery of corals after bleaching events.
