Viviana Brambilla is a PhD student in the lab of Maria Dornelas at the University of St Andrews. She studies niche construction, phenotypic plasticity and diversity of coral reef fauna. She is assessing the capacity of corals, as bioengineers, to modify environmental states (such as pH, temperature, light and flow) and evaluate how this can affect natural selection on them and other organisms, in accordance with niche construction theory (NCT).
