Explore the half of our world covered by deep ocean, and how our lives affect the hidden face of our planet.
Her research investigates the ecology, diversity and evolution of marine species, especially in insular chemosynthetic ecosystems in the deep ocean. This research is crucial to inform the sustainable use of marine resources and conservation strategies in our planet's largest biome. She employs molecular tools and traditional methods of taxonomy to enhance our understanding of the distribution of marine biodiversity. She interprets population genetic patterns in the context of life-history biology and distribution patterns of deep-sea species at global scale, in addition to investigating the spatial and temporal dynamics of faunal assemblages in deep-sea habitats under increasing pressure from anthropogenic impacts.
