My research currently centres around the coral microbiome, with a specific focus on nitrogen-cycling bacteria. I am interested in how these microbes behave under a stable state symbiosis and in response to seasonal and anthropogenic environmental change. I pay particular attention to the pathway of denitrification, which presently is an under-investigated area of research in hard coral holobionts. For my work, I draw from a combination of microbial ecology, coral physiology and biogeochemistry.
