My primary research is on coral reefs from shallow waters to the deep sea. My focus is on understanding their distribution, abundance, and physiology, as well as how they are affected by anthropogenic impacts. In the course of this research, I have developed a technological approach to deep sea research, particularly on the deep-water branching coral, Lophelia pertusa, that enhances our understanding of deep coral reefs and other ecosystems.
