My main research interests are in the fields of ecology and physiology of marine invertebrates, particularly molluscs and tropical reef-building corals. I am interested in understanding how changes in the abiotic environment, especially alterations in temperature and pH, influence physiological processes in these species. I received my PhD from the University of California, Berkeley in 2017. Since then, I have further developed my research as an independent postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre National de Séquençage, Evry, France (Genoscope). Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher with the Tara Pacific Project and stationed at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) based at the University of Perpignan in France.
