Project Title: Anemonefish and their host sea anemones in a changing climate

Supervisors: Dr Anna Scott and Professor Brendan Kelaher

Research summary

I am researching marine fish distribution and persistence, habitat impacts and symbiotic relationship breakdowns as the oceans warm using iconic anemonefishes and their host sea anemones. Via a combination of mensurative field and manipulative laboratory experiments, my PhD studies add to our knowledge of climate change impacts on marine life.
