Development and evolution of animal biomineral skeletons

Project Rationale. Uncovering the developmental, molecular, and cellular mechanisms by which different organisms grow and develop is fundamental for understanding the evolution of the diversity of animal forms seen on the planet today. Read more

Unravelling southwest Indian Ocean biological productivity and physics: a machine learning approach

Project Rationale. The Mozambique channel and Madagascan waters are a region of the southwestern Indian Ocean with complex circulation patterns that play a key role in the distribution of marine species and regulation of local ecosystems [1]. Read more

Three-dimensional mapping of mid-ocean ridge hydrothermal systems from electromagnetic data

Project Rationale . High-temperature hydrothermal circulation at mid-ocean ridges accounts for 30% of heat exchange between the Earth's interior and the deep ocean, controls global geochemical cycles, forms valuable seafloor mineral deposits and nourishes chemosynthetic life forms. Read more

Reconciling geotechnical and seismic data to accelerate green energy developments offshore

Project Rationale. Society faces two critical challenges. 1) increasing energy demand and 2) effects of climate change. These challenges require decarbonisation of the energy system by increasing the use of renewable and clean resources, and implementation of CO. Read more

Evolution of symbiosis in a warmer world

Project Rationale. The major bio-limiting nutrients in low to mid-latitude surface waters are nitrogen and phosphorous and their availability through time likely played a major role in evolution. Read more

Fish with friends: The calming effect of group living in social fishes

Project Rationale. Group living is common across the animal kingdom, ranging from the tiniest insects to the largest mammals. The ubiquity of sociality suggests that it imparts several benefits to individual group members. Read more

Understanding the role of cell motility in resource acquisition by marine phytoplankton

Project Rationale. Phytoplankton are often considered as drifters that are at the mercy of oceanic currents. However, many phytoplankton species are motile and can exhibit motile responses (such as swimming, gliding and buoyancy control) to light, temperature and nutrients. Read more
