I am an ecologist interested in processes of resilience, disturbance and recovery in coral reef ecosystems. My research to date has been largely based in the Indo-Pacific (Great Barrier Reef & Palau) and the Caribbean (Belize & Bahamas), looking at processes of disturbance (coral bleaching, coral disease, cyclones, corallivory) and the recovery of coral assemblages (coral recruitment) at varying spatial scales. I have a broader research interest in the historical ecology of coral reefs, global patterns of coral-macroalgal phase shifts and the application of coral geochemical methods (U-series dating and isotope geochemistry) to understanding the growth rates of corals. I am a member of Prof Peter Mumby's Marine Spatial Ecology Lab.
