Bio:
Professor Bette Willis is a Chief Investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and a Professor in the School of Marine and Tropical Biology at James Cook University. She also Co-chairs the GEF/World Bank Working Group on Coral Disease. Her research has addressed a broad range of questions concerning the biology and ecology of scleractinian corals over the past 20 years, particularly in relation to ocean warming. Currently, her research activities are directed at assessing the ecological significance and environmental drivers of coral disease on the Great Barrier Reef. Concurrently, she is exploring how algal endosymbiosis affects the physiology of the coral host, particularly in relation to thermal stress.
