Coral Health & Disease

Katie Eaton

Coral Resilience Technician

Katie recently got hired by Dr. Erinn Muller to conduct several coral resilience projects in the Florida Keys at IC2R3. She first joined Mote as an intern for the Ocean Acidification program, and then interned for the Coral Health and Disease program. Her goal is to determine which genotypes of major reef-building corals are the most resilient to climate change, ocean acidification, and disease. The data gained from these projects can then be used in future outplanting and coral restoration methods.
