Claire Lewis

Postdoctoral Researcher

My research focuses on understanding the evolution and ecology of corals, using molecular and experimental approaches. I am particularly interested in the less well-studied species on the reef who may have different responses to climate change because of their different ecologies. I am currently working on optimizing the growth and resilience of corals, to aid in the active restoration of Hawaiian reefs. The long term goal of this project is to protect the shoreline of our state and the communities that live here.
