Sylvain Agostini, Dr. Sci. Assistant Professor Shimoda Marine Research Center
This year, 2013, our paper entitled "Biological and chemical characteristics of the coral gastric cavity" published in Coral Reefs, the journal published by the International Society for Reef Studies was voted the Best Paper of the year 2012. It is a great honor and I hope that this paper and our research will inspire more research on micro scale processes within marine organisms. My research interests are presented below. The different topics are the research on the gastric cavity and new research topics such as: micro scale environments and the mechanism of calcification, and temperate corals.
