Dr. Dell graduated with an M.S in Aquatic Bioscience from Glasgow University and then a PhD in Marine Ecology from Georgia Institute of Technology (USA) under the guidance of Prof. Mark Hay. Her dissertation focused on the adaptations that allow some species to survive in degraded reef habitats on Fiji’s coral reefs when so many species are unable to. After completing her PhD, Dr. Dell joined the research group of Professor Deron Burkepile at the University of California, Santa Barbara. During this time, she worked in the Cayman Islands conducting research on the ecological links and species that should be managed locally so that the reefs are best able to withstand global stressors. Dr. Dell now teaches biology at the State University of New York, Asia campus.
