My name is Jonathan Ye and I am currently a rising senior at Hillsborough High School, and I am doing coral virus research at Rice University with Alex Vegalia of the Correa lab. We are investigating the role of viruses in coral heat tolerance. This past April (2021), I published an article in Issue 18 of the well respected Oceanographic magazine, discussing the need to protect our future. Earlier this year I gave a TEDX Talk discussing the potential of the assisted evolution of coral reefs. I will also be presenting at the 14th ICRS this summer on the need for citizen scientists and the role of the youth in bringing an immediate end to the coral reef crisis.
