I will use the latest methods in machine learning, an artificial intelligence (AI) method, to construct a reef-based ecological network, which will provide a conservation tool to study the structure and resilience of reef ecosystems.

 

Following in Darwin’s footsteps, this work will focus on the interactions that occur on the reefs of the Galapagos. By characterising and quantifying the ecological network of Galapagos reefs, which host an unbelievable diversity and abundance of reef species, we can substantially enhance our knowledge of reef ecology while informing local, regional and global conservation practices.
