I am a professor in marine ecology working in temperate and tropical coastal ecosystems, with a special focus on fishes. Over the past decade, I have examined how ecosystem connectivity affects the functioning and resilience of tropical coastal ecosystems including coral reefs, seagrasses, and mangroves. I have done most of my work in the Caribbean, Eastern Africa, and Australia. I recently held a Future Fellowship awarded by the Australian Research Council to study the effects of climate change on fishes and marine ecosystems.

Nicole has worked in cancer research since 1996. She completed a PhD at the University of Adelaide in 2003, where she studied the effects of male hormones, known as androgens, in breast cancer. She then did her post-doctoral training at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, where she studied how hormones interact with proteins that control cell division in breast cancer.
