Microbial Ecology for Ocean Conservation
I am a marine microbial ecologist, and my research focuses on the contribution of microorganisms to the health and ecology of sensitive animals and ecosystems of the ocean. My research uses a combination of field measurements and observations and laboratory experiments and relies on diverse methodology (cultivation, genomic, metagenomic and bioinformatic) to understand the microbiomes marine mammals, corals and coral reef ecosystems.
