I am a passionate marine biologist committed to investigating the influence of sunlight energy on the physiology and ecology of marine organisms, with a particular focus on tropical symbiotic corals. These charismatic organisms rely on sunlight as an essential energy source given their obligate symbiotic relationship with photosynthetic zooxanthellae. However, this symbiosis is highly sensitive to anthropogenic disturbances, making coral reefs one of the most threatened ecosystems by global change. This attributes, among others, positions corals as an essential model for exploring a wide spectrum of questions spanning multiple levels of organization, from single organisms to the whole coral reef ecosystem.

Thank you for visiting my website, and I hope my work inspires you to appreciate the wonders of marine life.
