PROFESSIONAL AND RESEARCH INTERESTS

Coral reef restoration. Coral gardening, coral transplantation, reef rehabilitation. My focus is on applying science-based coral reef restoration techniques. A growing interest is on coral reef gardening as a Marine Protected Area management tool.

Conservation strategies and tools. Following a multidisciplinary approach and through networking, communication, publication and training in marine sciences I seek solutions to environmental problems.

Capacity building. For people dependent on natural resources, to develop opportunities for further education to empower them to independently improve their livelihood security, and take advantage productively of opportunities offered in their wider socio-economic and political setting.
