Research interests

I am a palaeontologist working on Palaeozoic tabulate corals. I focus principally on their ecology, especially on symbiotic associations, with focus on photosymbiosis - photosymbionts do not fossilize, so I have to evidence it indirectly. This led me to plating corals, and finally, to the Devonian MCEs. I wish to continue this research, as I think that these ecosystems are even much older.
