My research role focused on the technical aspects of science with the aim to design and deploy monitoring and sampling systems.

Carbon system chemistry of the Chagos reef system. I deploy/recover autonomous underwater systems and data loggers used to measure the physical and chemical properties of the seawater. Our goal is to better understand the net community calcification and production rates of the reef system.

It is important for us to know how the changes in ocean chemistry will impact marine organisms and their ecosystems, so that we that we can learn how to manage them more effectively.
