Research Fellow at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, Victoria University

My research interests span conservation biology, marine spatial planning, conservation planning and implementation. My love for the outdoors and concern about the future of our planet prompted me to develop research programs that focus on options for the conservation of biodiversity whilst respecting people’s needs and uses of resources.

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in Program 6 (Conservation Planning for a Sustainable Future), working closely with Professor Bob Pressey. My research (past and present) covers three themes: Patch dynamics and conservation planning, Marine protected area design and Human uses and impacts on the marine environment.
