Philip Kushlan

Ph.D. Candidate
Marine Biology & Ecology

Philip graduated from the University of Miami with a B.S. in Marine Science and Biology in 2008. Philip earned his M.S. from UM in 2011, studying the metabolic interaction between pea aphids and their endosymbiotic bacteria using genomic and stable isotope techniques in the lab of Alex Wilson. Philip started his Ph.D. in the MBE program at RSMAS in 2012, where he uses the genomic and transcriptomic resources available for Symbiodinium and coral species to investigate the differential performance and stress tolerance of coral holobionts. He is especially interested in exploring the genomic basis underlying coral-algal associations that are able to thrive in stressful conditions where others cannot. Philip is supported by a Maytag Fellowship from the University of Miami.
