Nicole Webster


Nicole Webster is a microbial ecologist at the Australian Institute of Marine Science where she works within the Marine Microbes and Symbiosis team. Her primary research focus is exploring the impacts of environmental change on reef microbial symbioses. Microbial symbioses are often critical to the health of reef invertebrates and understanding the impacts of stress on the intimate microbial partnerships can enable more sensitive predictions of how organisms like sponges, corals and ascidians will respond to climate change. Her research assesses all components of reef holobionts (host and associated microorganisms). She incorporates novel molecular technologies and genomic approaches to look at microbial community responses and changes in symbiotic function whilst simultaneously assessing the host stress responses.
