Research Fellow

Research | Current

I am a field-based marine ecologist with a background in ecosystem function of estuarine soft-sediment, mangrove, and seagrass ecosystems. My current research focus is on the ecological traits/attributes that make seafloor ecosystems resilient to different scales of human disturbance in the coastal environment.
