Research Interests

​I am a marine scientist and my research interests focus around how the changing ocean environment impacts marine organisms at the molecular level. More specifically I am interested in the epigenetic changes caused by climate change on coral reef fishes. I hope to find how these changes are passed through generations, which can allow these fish to acclimate and adapt to the rapidly changing climate.
