Dr David Evans (2016-2019) – David is investigating the roles of calcification fluid chemistry and organic materials in coral biomineralisation. He is funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
Tammy Green (2014-2018) – Tammy is a postgraduate student studying sulphur cycling in coral reefs.
Dr Cathy Cole (2012-2015) – Cathy was funded by NERC and studied the effect of changes in seawater pCO2 on coral skeletal chemistry. Cathy is now a climate science communicator at the Met Office in Exeter.
Dr Chris Hintz (2012) – Chris also worked on the NERC funded project to investigate how seawater pCO2 impacts coral skeletal chemistry. He made 2 extended visits to St. Andrews to assist with the culture system build and he wrote the MATLAB software (with Ken) to control the system. After the visits, Chris returned to his day job as an associate professor in marine and environmental science at Savannah State University, Georgia.
Dr Ken Hintz (2012) – Ken is Chris’ Dad and he joined Chris on his first visit to help write the MATLAB guis. When he’s not moonlighting in marine science, Ken is an associate professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at George Mason University, Virginia.
Many undergraduates assist in the coral lab but special thanks to Casey Perry, Sasha Brytova, Alec Christie, Rowan McLachlan (now at Ohio State University) and Louise Cameron (now at Northeastern University, Boston).
