Supervised Research Degrees

I am currently supervising one MRes student and one PhD student (Doctoral Teaching Assistant):

- Ana Coelho Ferreira: Functional implications of hard coral-soft coral shifts on reef fish communities (ResM)

- Sarah Hinckley: Do complex signals help structure intertidal communities? Chemical ecology of patellid limpet mucus (DTA)


I am module leader for: 

- MBIO226: Experimental Marine Biology Field Course (B.Sc. Marine Biology, 2nd year). 

I also teach on:

- MBIO120 Introduction to Marine Biology (1st year)

- MBIO123 Marine Biology Field Course (1st Year)

- MBIO223 Methods in Marine Biology (2nd Year)

- MBIO329 Marine Biology and Evolutionary Approach (3rd Year)

- MBIO327 Marine Ecology (3rd Year)

- MBAM5106 Advanced Research in Marine Biology (MRes)

I also supervise around 8 undergraduate student projects a year, and some masters students.

Current MRes Students:

- Luke Herring: Studying the metabolomic response of different populations of Acropora pulchra and Acropora aspera to thermal stress for restoration purposes.

- Constance Little: Linking organismal physiology with environmental health: heat-stress associated changes in coral holobionts metabolic profiles.

- Laura Paling: Investigating the impacts of allelopathy from the sponge Lamelodysidea herbacea from Moorea, French Polynesia, on Acropora pulchra and Pocillopora acuta.

- Graham Sharpe: Spatiotemporal Metabolomic and Morphological Variation in the Cosmopolitan Intertidal Sponge Hymeniacidon perlevis: Exploring Bioindication Potential.
