Christian R. Voolstra

Associate Professor
Biological and Environmental Science and Engineering Division
King Abdullah University Of Science and Technology
Saudi Arabia

Biography

​Dr. Voolstra's research area is ecological and environmental genomics. His research aims to develop an integrated understanding of the ecology and evolution of the coral metaorganism (i.e. cnidarian host, dinoflagellate intracellular symbiont, associated microbiota) on a molecular level to predict adaptive capabilities and biotic response to environmental change. Coral reefs are biodiversity reservoirs and a significant source of nutrition and pharmaceuticals, but coral reefs face an unprecedented decline in the last decades due to anthropogenic impact.
