Research focus

Reef restoration, coastal management and conservation. Southeast Asia remains the global hotspot for marine biodiversity but intense anthropogenic pressure has significantly depressed the level of ecosystem services resulting in compromised environmental and societal security. Science is necessary to support effective coastal governance policies. In a region with widespread marine environmental degradation exacerbated by climate change impacts, habitat restoration/remediation remains part of the needed response. My research continues although I no longer accept students.
