Research interests

Norbert's expertise is in the area of coral reproduction and physiology. His responsibilities lie with monitoring quadrats, sensory equipment and Diver Propulsion Vehicles (DPVs). Norbert grew up in the Netherlands, but has recently moved to Australia to start his PhD research at The University of Queensland. His main research interest is the ecology of mesophotic corals, and particularly how these corals manage to survive and reproduce under extreme low-light conditions.
