Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Deep Reef, XL Catlin Seaview Survey

Pim is the lead scientist for the Deep Reef Component of the XL Catlin Seaview Survey. The Deep Reef Survey looks into the effects of climate change on one of the least known ecosystems on the planet – the deep-water reefs or mesophotic coral ecosystems (between 30-100m). The project aims to provide a comprehensive study of the health, composition and biodiversity of the mesophotic reefs on the Great Barrier Reef and in the Coral Sea, as well as experimentally assess their susceptibility to increased temperature and climate change.
