My research involves the geochemical study of marine biological archives (massive corals) from the Indian Ocean as recorders of environmental and climate change over the past 300 years and during the Holocene. In most cases, I have worked on western Indian Ocean coral records. This work is motivated by the need to produce reliable, long-term observations of sea surface temperature, ocean currents and the hydrological cycle over the tropical/subtropical oceans.

Cristina’s masters project examined the likely impact of future climate change on the distribution of threatened mammal species in south west Western Australia. She plans to use her time at UQ to extend this project to consider the management implications of these shifting ranges, and produce a manuscript for submission. This project was linked to an ARC-Linkage with Gondwana Link, jointly held by Dr Kerrie Wilson and Prof. Hugh Possingham.
