Introduction
Currently a Ph.D. candidate at UMiami RSMAS working on microeukaryotes and protists and how they interact in the coral holobiont relative to disease and compromised health. Research interests involve microbial ecology and disease of coral reefs, conservation ecology of tropical reef communities, and the ecology of marine symbioses.

Ocean warming is increasing the incidence, scale, and severity of global-scale coral bleaching and mortality, culminating in the third global coral bleaching event that occurred during record marine heatwaves of 2014-2017. While local effects of these events have been widely reported, the global implications remain unknown. Analysis of 15,066 reef...
Article
The Stramenopiles are a large and diverse group of eukaryotes that possess various lifestyles required to thrive in a broad array of environments. The stramenopiles branch with the alveolates, rhizarians, and telonemids, forming the supergroup TSAR. Here, we present a new genus and species of aquatic nanoflagellated stramenopile: Mediocremonas medi...

Given the rapid change in coral reef assemblages globally, quantification of coral bleaching events, disease prevalence and mortality is critical. Here we discuss observations on the status of coral reefs in Southern Eleuthera, The Bahamas following the 2014 to 2017 global bleaching event. A total of 37 unique hard coral species were observed from...

Coral bacterial associates can play important functional roles for the holobiont, such as nitrogen cycling, nutrient processing, and supporting immunity. While bacteria found within the microbiome of corals may benefit the host, they can also be linked to pathogenesis. In the deep-sea, cold-water corals, like their warm shallow-water counterparts,...

Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) stimulates luteinizing hormone release to control ovulation and spermiation in vertebrates. Dopamine (DA) has a clear inhibitory role in the control of reproduction in numerous teleosts, and emerging evidence suggests that similar mechanisms may exist in amphibians. The interactions between GnRH and DA on spawn...
