Introduction
Coral ecology and genetics are the main interests of my research. My current project focuses on the population structure and connectivity of acroporids at Magnetic Island and their Symbiodiniaceae community and includes also aspects of coral restoration techniques. We will apply NGS to assess the populations' genetic diversity and reef connectivity and evaluate current approaches to create resilient coral reefs.

Article

Occurrence, abundance, and distribution of fishes in intertidal rock pools are influenced by environmental and biological traits that determine habitat quality. Fishes actively inhabit areas that represent the most suitable habitat for their development. For the intertidal fish community of El Zonte, physical and structural traits of rock pool habi...
