I am interested in exploring how we can sustainably rehabilitate coral reef ecosystems that have been damaged by events, such as mass coral bleaching, to improve the success of restoration efforts. I will be investigating how different coral morphologies, densities and arrangements typical to the Ningaloo reef region influence coral reef resilience to damage by ocean surface waves, including those generated during extreme events like tropical cyclones.
I intend to utilise the advancing technology in 3D printing to re-create detailed coral structures which will be instrumented with a range of different sensors and then deployed in both the laboratory and field.
