Verena is originally from Austria where she obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and a Master’s degree in Zoology from the University of Innsbruck. She then started a PhD in Geological Sciences at The Ohio State University where she studied the impacts of combined climate change stressors on coral physiology and biogeochemistry. In 2013, Verena joined the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Western Australia. Her current research focuses on the heat tolerance of corals from the naturally extreme Kimberley region as well as coral calcification mechanisms under various climate change stressors.
