Veronica Radice completed her PhD at the University of Queensland in Australia studying tropical coral reefs of the Indo-Pacific. Her research investigates coral acclimatization to local environmental conditions. She uses field-based experiments and biogeochemical techniques to study how corals acclimatize to shallow versus deep reef environments, with a focus on lower-light mesophotic coral ecosystems. Veronica’s current work is focused on understanding the impacts of ocean warming on coral recovery following coral bleaching. Veronica is a US National Park Foundation fellow studying shallow and mesophotic coral reefs in the National Park of American Sāmoa with the Barshis Lab at Old Dominion University (USA).
