I strive to understand how the immediate abiotic environment and biotic interactions drive organism phenotype, through the interaction of genetics, epigenetics, symbiosis, and ontogeny. To date, I have utilized scleractinian, or reef-building corals as a model system. These fragile symbiotic organisms provide the foundation of an ecosystem and the perfect study system to focus on biological response within the context of local environmental stress and a changing climate.
