Broad research interests on multidisciplinary approaches to understand drivers of change in coral reefs ecosystems, and ultimately, to inform ecosystem-based management. This involves areas such as spatial and disturbance ecology, coral reef monitoring and ecosystem-based mathematical modelling.
My research background covers different angles of coral reef ecology:
Ecology of coral reef sponges
Exploring aspects of theoretical ecology in coral reefs, using field observations, experimental work and mathematical models, to understand long-term trajectories.
Experimental biology to evaluate climate change effects on phenological patterns
Global coral reef monitoring by implementing technological advances in artificial intelligence to explore broad-scale patterns of coral reef change at high-definition (XL Catlin Seaview Survey)
