Gonzalo is a PhD candidate CRIOBE- EPHE (French Polynesia & France).
His research is about understanding the role of mesophotic corals to the overall coral resilience.
Focusing on the mesophotic corals of French Polynesia as a study framework, his research is divided in two main approaches:
1) The community structure and ecology of scleractinian corals along the depth gradient according to environmental conditions
2) The physiological capacity of generalist corals (species present in shallow and mesophotic depths) to cope with low light environments at depth.
