Project Description

Dr. Correa became an assistant professor in BioSciences at Rice University after five years of experience as a non-tenure track faculty member at the same institution. Her postdoctoral and doctoral research focused on the diversity of marine microorganisms and their roles in host and coastal ecosystem health. She received a Ph.D. in ecology and evolution, and a M.A. in conservation biology, from Columbia University. Her B.S. in biology is from the University of Michigan. For nearly three years, Dr. Correa has helped advise management of coral reefs in the northwest Gulf of Mexico through her seat on the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council. Dr. Correais work monitors how marine microbial communities shift when human activities alter temperature, nutrient availability, and other conditions in coastal ecosystems. She is currently characterizing the impacts of viruses on coral reefs and is expanding these efforts into mangrove, salt marsh, and seagrass ecosystems.
