I’m currently a PhD candidate at University of New South Wales Sydney. I work in the I-DEEL lab advised by Prof. Shinichi Nakagawa. My PhD focuses on utilizing systematic-like research to better understand coral health and how reefs are being impacted by and responding to the effects of climate change.
