I am a marine geology PhD student at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS). Currently I am studying the variability of bioerosion in the mesophotic reefs south of the US Virgin Islands, St. Thomas. For more information please see my website:


  Please note that only publications relevant to mesophotic reefs are indexed.
