Yui Sato


PhD Graduate


James Cook University



Yui is originally from Japan and has completed his Bachelor of Science in biology in Tohoku University in Sendai. He completed his PhD study on coral disease in 2012, following the dynamics of a black band disease outbreak at Pelorus Island in the central Great Barrier Reef and focusing on environmental drivers and microbial mechanisms of the disease. His study was jointly supervised by Professor Bette Willis and Dr David Bourne (Australian Institute of Marine Science; AIMS) as a member of AIMS@JCU. Yui has taken on a postdoctoral fellow position at AIMS, looking at a relationship between the recovery of coral population and disease outbreak, and microbial functioning in the etiology of black band disease.
