Ben Mason


Former Research Fellow


James Cook University


Ben is originally from Slippery Rock (USA). He completed a BS in Biology/Environmental Science in 2000 at Allegheny College, a MS in Marine Biology in 2004 at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, and earned his PhD in Marine Biology in 2011 from the University of Miami. His research has evolved around coral reproduction and larval biology/ecology, including investigations of the effects of ocean acidification on the early life history stages of corals and the influence of light on larval settlement. Ben joined the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies in 2012 as an NSF International Postdoctoral Fellow. His research investigates the sensory biology of corals with a focus on the molecular mechanisms underpinning photo- and chemoreception in coral larvae.
