Gemma’s research focuses on the ecology of reef fishes found on seamount and pinnacle coral reefs. Working in Kimbe Bay, Papua New Guinea, Gemma is exploring reef fish community structure and potential effects for individuals found living on small, submerged (>20m) seamounts. Using multiple methods including stereo-video and ROV surveys, Gemma is interested in combining community ecology and oceanography to study these distinct coral reef habitats. Gemma is conducting her project under the supervision of Profs Geoff Jones and Mark McCormick.
