Timothy Ravasi is a Professor of Marine Science, the Principal Investigator of the Marine Climate Change Unit at OIST and an Adjunct Professor at the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, James Cook University in Australia. Tim’s research interest lies on the current status of coral reef ecosystems. He is particularly interested in looking at ecologically relevant issues in the light of rapid environmental change, such as climate change. Using integrative approaches, he seeks to understand how coral reef fish respond to rapid environmental changes such as climate change, heatwaves, overfishing and urbanization.
