RFA: Impacts & Visualization

Research: Coral Epigenetic Mechanisms

Adviser: Jose Eirin-Lopez

Joined CREST CAChE in Fall 2020

My research in environmental epigenetics will be focused on investigating how epigenetic states are encoded in corals, how epigenetic responses are mediated between the different symbiotic partners (coral, photosynthetic algae, and bacterial microbiome), and how epigenetic regulatory mechanisms influence the environmental responses of the coral holobiont.
