Andréa Grottoli

Professor Grottoli has been studying coral reefs for 30 years. She and her team are focused on three areas of research: 1- determining what drives resilience in corals in the face of climate change, 2- developing blue technology for enhancing coral survivorship and restoration success, and 3- reconstructing oceanographic conditions in the past. She uses a combination of biology, physiology, and geochemistry tools in her research coupled with fieldwork and scuba diving. She has published peer-reviewed journal articles in such journals as Nature, Global Change Biology, and Nature Communications, and she has  been featured on National Public Radio and several websites and newspapers.
