David Abrego is interested in the eco-physiology of coral-algal symbioses, particularly the mechanisms leading to the establishment and maintenance of these associations in order to understand the impacts of environmental change to reel-building corals. This study formed part of his PhD Thesis entitled ’Temporal and environmental influences on the early establishment and maintenance of coral-Symbiodinium symbioses‘. Madeleine van Oppen's research focuses on the genetics and genomics of adaptation/acclimatization and resilience of corals to climate change, and assessment of the tools and consequences of human interventions in reef recovery and restoration. Bette Willis is a coral biologist whose research activities address questions concerning the resilience of reef corals in the face of increasing anthropogenic stress and climate change. Currently, her research focuses on the ecological significance of coral disease and the role of algal endosymbioses in the long term persistence of coral reefs.
