Research Interests

My research addresses questions that focus on the contribution of Bacteria and Archaea to the
health and ecology of marine animals. I am also interested in how animal-associated microbes
reflect alterations in their surrounding marine environment due to climate change and other
anthropogenic-related impacts. My current research uses traditional microbiology, microbial
oceanographic, genomic, metagenomic and bioinformatic tools to examine the microbiomes of
reef-building corals and marine mammals.
