Biographical entry Webster, Nicole (1973 - )
Ormskirk, United Kingdom
- Marine Science
Dr Nicole Webster obtained her PhD from James Cook University in 2001. Her research focused on the microbial ecology of a Great Barrier Reef sponge, concentrating on how stable the symbiotic associations of numerous areas were under various stress conditions. In 2001, she received a postdoctoral fellowship with the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS). She then received a postdoctoral fellowship from the University of Canterbury and Gateway Antarctica from 2001 to 2005. Her work here looked at using microbial communities as indicators for man-made stress in the Antarctic marine environment. Webster became a research scientist at AIMS where she persisted with her research into microbial-sponge symbiosis as a sensitive model of environmental stress.
