Yui Sato is a postdoctoral fellow in James Cook University, and has joined the force for the Reef Restoration and Adaptation Program. His current work focusses on the effect of coral genetic diversity in the coral aquaculture effort and development of scalable detection methods for coral pathogens and pests using molecular approaches.

He has completed his PhD in James Cook University on the ecology and microbiology of a coral disease. Following his PhD, he has conducted a postdoc fellowship on a closely related studies in AIMS, including coral reef recovery from natural disturbances and coral disease. Building upon his studies on the interaciton between marine animals and microbial symbionts, he then held a scientist position at the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology in the Department of Symbiosis. In the Max Planck Institute, he used population-scale metagenomics to tackle evolutionary questions in animal-bacterial symbioses further.
