Specific Interests

My research looks at fluorescent proteins within scleractinian corals and if these proteins offer photoprotection to the coral animal. Also, whether corals express higher fluorescence under stressful conditions. Future research will explore ways to best utilize this knowledge to aid in providing protection to our failing reef systems
