Projects and publications:

My research has focused on the larval ecology and biogeography of coral reefs. My larval ecology work describes thermal tolerance of the dispersive life stages of corals, particularly across latitudinal gradients. My biogeography work investigates the influence of coral life history traits on assemblage structure across dispersal barriers.
