Project Description

Dr. Davies is an assistant professor of Biology at Boston University, where she studies the ecophysiology and genomics of reef building corals. Although she has conducted research on corals reefs around the world, she has always maintained an active research program at the Flower Garden Banks in the Gulf of Mexico. Dr. Davies earned her M.S. in biology from the University of Calgary and her Ph.D. in ecology, evolution, and behavior from The University of Texas at Austin. During her M.S. and Ph.D. work, she was supported by fellowships with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and the National Science Foundation. She also worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she became a Simons Foundation Fellow of the Life Sciences Research Foundation. Research in the Davies lab focuses on the potential roles of acclimation, adaptation, and dispersal in an organismis response to rapid climate change.
