Dr Agostini is studying the effects of climate change and ocean acidification on the ecophysiology of corals. Dr Agostini especially focuses on research of coral ecosystems in marginal areas, where communities are exposed to multiple stressors, taking advantage of natural analogues and gradients in CO2, pollutants, latitudinal temperature gradients, etc. He initiated the use of the Shikine Island CO2 seep and led the creation of the ICONA network.

Dr Reimer is a leading scientist in the field of coral reef biodiversity. His research focuses on understudied groups, primarily benthic cnidarians including zoantharians and their endosymbionts, as well as octocorals, from shallow tropical coral reefs to the deep sea. Dr Reimer is interested in how climate change and anthropogenic stressors will affect coral reef and marine biodiversity into the future, particularly from the viewpoint of understudied “minor taxa”, which may not be so “minor” in the future.
