My PhD research is centered around the effects of anthropogenic nutrient pollution on the health of corals and how it modifies their epigenome. Through my research I hope to elucidate how the epigenetic changes translate into phenotypic changes that help the corals adapt to a stressful environment, as well as how coral physiology and shape may correlate to resilience.
