Coral Carbon Cycling in Modern Systems

We seek to understand the dynamics of carbon budgets on different marine ecosystems (e.g. kelp forests, coral reefs, sea grass beds) and how they become more or less vulnerable to ocean acidification.

Coral Paleoclimatology

We utilize deep sea coral and tropical coral records to reconstruct recent climate change as well as develop new proxies.
