Mihir Shah

Emily Howells is a coral biologist interested in the ecological and evolutionary responses of reef-building corals to climate warming. She is currently leading projects on the genetic basis of thermal tolerance in coral populations from the Great Barrier Reef and wider Indo-Pacific. These collaborative projects combine approaches in field ecology, experimental biology, breeding, quantitative genetics, and genomics to advance knowledge of the adaptive capacity of coral populations under different warming scenarios and management strategies.
