Meet our newest lab member—MS student Ben Young! He received his undergraduate degree in Zoology and Geosciences at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. “My Marine Biology units, paired with field trips and travels to the Great Barrier Reef really cemented that I wanted to work with coral in my academic future. An internship at Mote Marine Laboratories in the Florida Keys really impacted me, as it showed first-hand the uphill struggle that is ahead with Anthozoa and anthropogenic climate change. While restoration is key, there is a whole suite of other areas which need to be fully understood so to allow restoration efforts to be undertaken as efficiently as possible.”

–Ben
