Researcher biography

Increasing development in tropical regions provides new economic opportunities that can improve livelihoods. But it threatens the functional integrity and ecosystem services provided by terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems when conducted unsustainably. My research identifies and critically assesses management gaps and conservation solutions to benefit both nature and people in coastal communities. An interdisciplinary approach that emphasises the ecological and social connectivity of systems and the need for cross-sector collaboration is paramount to all of my research. This approach ensures that I am producing the knowledge and tools that communities, conservation organizations, and governments need to balance conservation and development goals.
