Research Interests

Effects of global climate change in the dynamics of biological partnerships involving microbes, in particular reef-forming corals and their associated algae; light scattering and propagation in coral tissue and skeleton; characterization of microbes at the cell and genetic level; characterization of the symbiotic relationship and of its limitations (i.e., coral bleaching when corals undergo thermal stress)
