Chloe Carbonne, PhD
Chloe is a marine biology and ecology Post-doc in the MABEE (Marine Benthic Ecology & Ecophysiology) Lab. Her research has been focused on the impact of global change - mostly ocean acidification and warming - on the physiology of cnidarians and their tolerance to low pH and high temperatures.
After a BSc in Marine Organisms and Population Biology at the Université de Bretagne Occidentale (UBO), France, Chloe completed her MSc in Marine biology and Ecology at the European Institute for Marine Studies (IUEM), France, in 2018. Her master's thesis took place at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, where she studied the physiological impact of heat stress and different Symbiodinium genotypes reinfection after bleaching on a symbiotic model cnidarian, Aiptasia.
Chloe received her PhD from Sorbonne University at Villefranche sur Mer, France, in 2022, under the 4Oceans – Make our Planet Great Again project. During her PhD, she worked on the role of environmental variability in the response of Mediterranean corals to global change. Her PhD research consisted of accessing the physiological impact of ocean warming and acidification on adult and early life stages corals living in naturally acidified seawater by CO2 vents around the Island of Ischia, Italy. Chloe is currently a Post-doc at ASU BIOS working on the Artificial Upwelling project (AU-coral) which aims to assess the effects of different artificial upwelling scenarios (different temperatures and durations) on the physiology of corals exposed to heat stress.
