Research interest

My main research interests are: 1) the effects of stressors on the different life history stages of corals (from gametes to adults) and their implications for population replenishment and maintenance, 2) the role of source reefs as larvae suppliers for sink reefs that are frequently exposed to stressors, and 3) the characteristics that allow resilient reefs to restore or maintain coral cover after disturbances.
